Hi Giford,
I´ve started to browse your PS. And I´ve gone outright to click this link-entry.
I love the genre since I first read comics at 17. Then novels and films. I like very much those and many other writers you have mentioned. What about Asfalt Jungle?
I´ve missed in your entry a political mention about what those novels showed.I have always thought that they were a hard criticism against the capitalist system, the American Dream...etc.
It´s late now, five minutes past midnight.
I´ll come back to your PS. It promises good reading
Un saludo

Hi M,

Thanks!

Yes, for sure some films noir had a political tone - 'Force of Evil' springs to mind as particularly anti-capitalist. But quite a few didn't (that I can see).

And yes, there are many, many great films that aren't mentioned in the article!

Hi Giford, I write here because I don´t want to show my thick understanding, at least this morning, so much.
I feelsmiley - erm because I don´t know Why have you written my name above a quotation that doesn´t belong to me. I thought first that it was a mistake and them that , it had to do with my words... but... I can´t work out the reason you have put that quotation and my name. I know it has to do with what I´ve said about my wormate and my family but I´m not very sure.smiley - sheep
Sorrysmiley - blush but I´d love to read again that post, in a more simple way. But don´t do it if you don´t feel like it. It´s not your duty smiley - nurse poor English-language- or thick-ed minded people like me smiley - biggrin
