About this work

Description

"From the German Expressionist cinema of the late 1920s to the present-day cyberpunk movement, the book examines over 100 movies in which the common noir elements of crime, mystery, surrealism, and human perversity intersect with the high technology of science fiction. The author also details the hybrid subgenre's considerable influences on contemporary music, fashion, and culture"--Provided by publisher.
