Yes, but they are transcended through faith. Not so in noir.

And I cannot think of any noir stories where characters are punished for their immorality. They may come to a bad end, living in and perhaps participating in a violent, corrupt world, but the heavens do not open, lightening does not strike them down. But I haven't read everything. Perhaps you could enlighten me?
