The concept that the film noir genre is an effort at catharsis following the trauma that was World War II is disproved by its continuing proliferation. One change that has occurred is the 'caper film' category. This category portrays criminal activities involving an elaborate strategy that through an absurd cosmic twist turns it fatal. At the core is a concerted effort at an anti-social response to social institutions that dehumanize individuals, especially those at the periphery. Classic examples include 'The Asphalt Jungle,' 'The Killers,' 'Criss Cross,' 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction.'.
