Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: Psycho Noir

It is interesting to compare Jim Thompson's thoroughly convincing and downright scary psychopaths to David Goodis' rather baroque versions of psychosis - these elaborate and almost mystical, vaguely Freudian obsessions that grip the hero and won't let go. Both effective, but so different in effect.
