And that's a bad thing? At least two, maybe all three, of those things are what I look for in a good noir. Lots of noir characters are at least arrested adolescents, if not downright childish in their inability to delay gratification, which often leads to morbid and distasteful results. Hell, their gratification is often found in morbid, distateful, and childish things.
