The Dark Mirror explores the richness of psychiatric imagery in film noir and how the popularization of psychoanalysis in the U.S. during the 1940s and 1950s influenced film noir as a whole. Santos examines many little-known films and unearths surprising discoveries about the psychological underpinnings of noir.

Marlisa Santos is associate professor and director of the division of humanities at Nova Southeastern University.
