Though I do have to say, chasing noir in this thread is like chasing dragons. They’re often elusive, exotic and rare, sometimes found in realms you weren’t previously aware of; they’re dangerous, so even when you find that incredible specimen it means you’re sometimes smashed in the face with hard doses of nastiness; and most people don’t know they exist except in legend, denying their very existence (i.e. don’t wanna watch them), so you search alone through bleak, grayscale worlds.
Which brings up something Tommy joked about in an earlier post--movie night.
Would anyone be interested in a kind of movie night where we identify and agree on a noir film participants have access to, synchronize our watches and start the film simultaneously at an agreed time, then hop on the boards to discuss when finished?
