It may be redundant to say so, but noir is a sub-genre of crime fiction. Forget that and the cat is so long out of the bag that every kitten begins to look alike.

And while it may be Hard Boil that's working class, noir too looks at the world, especially the exercise of power, from the bottom up. Correct me if I'm wrong, but might not even Captains be existentialists?
