RARA-AVIS: Does Hard Boiled have a philosophy?

From: bsandyman@att.net
Date: 13 May 2005

There have been several good discussion in recent months about the Existentialist underpinnings of the noir genre. Does Hard Boiled have a similar background, and if so, what is it?

Off the cuff,

Agressive Stoicism?

To (badly) paraphrase DeCarte, "I been hard done by, therefore I'm going to break some heads!"
