Film Noir Narratives

Narrative One

At the start of the movie, a man is murdered in an alley way with an unknown killer. The police arrive to the scene to find a piece of the murderers clothes caught on a piece of metal. There are 4 suspects, the wife, an employee that he previously fired from his job as he was the manager and his good friend that he last talked to.

The detective spends time to figure out each of their roles and see if any clues can link up to the situation while asking them specific questions about the murder. Before the detective can ask the victim’s friend about the murder, he somehow gets murdered by one of the other suspects. This creates more tension and suspicion towards the suspects which makes the detective curious on why he was murdered just before he was able to ask any questions and who murdered him as well. This leaves the wife, the employee that the victim fired and a man who witnessed the murder as suspects.

The detective then sees the wife walking through an alley way whilst she tries to hide her gun in her jacket but is stopped by the detective. She tries to make an excuse of her delivering to a friend for protection but finally gives in after multiple questions from the detective. She tells the detective that he was to power and money driven and would abuse her if she did a small mistake and she couldn’t take it and that she was on her way to murder the witness as she was worried she might remember her if the witness saw her at some point.
