Noir with a twist

A jaw-dropping, cameo-stuffed, hilarious joyride

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Who Framed Roger Rabbit (USA, 1988, Touchstone Pictures) and Shutter Island(USA, 2010, Paramount Pictures) — noir with a twist!

After taking the ride at Disneyland, what better to do than finally watch Who Framed Roger Rabbit? This film is a brilliant twist on the noir style, seamlessly blending hand-drawn cartoons with live performers. The result is a jaw-dropping, cameo-stuffed, hilarious joyride through the definitive love letter to the medium of animated cartoons.

If noir is your style of choice but talking rabbits is a deal-breaker, Shutter Island is another mind-blowing twist on the noir style. The premise: detectives Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo have been summoned to Shutter Island, an insane asylum, to explore the disappearance of their latest patient. What makes this film unique is how excellently it draws you into the minds of the characters, all while toying with the traditional noir style.
