In Issue #31 of the NOIR CITY Magazine, the FNF announces this year's Modern Noir Master, an award annually bestowed by the foundation upon a contemporary artist whose work has extended the traditions of classic film noir. This year writer-director Mike Hodges, who created such landmark neo-noirs as Get Carter (1971), Pulp (1972), and Croupier (1998), joins the ranks of previous recipients Stephen Frears, James Ellroy, and David Mamet. NOIR CITY's Ray Banks speaks at length with Hodges and their fascinating conversation is augmented by exclusive comments from two of our honoree's most renowned collaborators: Michael Caine and Clive Owen. Also highlighted in this issue: Imogen Sara Smith explores the contemporary noir of filmmaker Christian Petzold, Sean Axmaker profiles iconoclastic director André de Toth, Farran Smith Nehme details the life of stalwart supporting actress Virginia Grey, John Wranovics reveals the fascinating story of writer Art Cohn, and much, much more.
