The Shadow

This reading didn’t impress me much but must say still see noir there! You’ve got the crime, murder and drunks present. Definitely sultry and noir materials. I found it to be a very twisted plot in this script and not sure I like readings like this. A lot of he said/she said going on in the twists and the lack of activity made the Shadow seem to be just that a shadow you can only think is there but when you turn to look it’s gone! After spending about seventeen days out to sea no food or water and to have them just “part ways” once they got back to land is a little strange as I thought there would be connections and a thankfulness for everything each did to make it back but instead it wasn’t anything like that.

One thought on “The Shadow”

  1. Maybe the story lost something because it was meant to be heard rather than read. It is worth considering how writing differs across media, and how sound and images impact a story and enhance or alter the meaning of the words. But the script isn’t up to the level of artistry of Cain or Hemingway either.
