RARA-AVIS: A History of Violence

Anybody see the movie A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE yet? (Based on a graphic novel I haven't read by John Wagner and Vincent Locke.) It's good noir. Reminds me a great deal of Lawrence Block, but also of THE PRONE GUNMAN by John Patrick Manchette, about the hit man who is trying to get out of the business. That's a book mentioned by Domenic Stansberry in his
"Noir Manifesto" as a key noir book.

Best, Bruce
