I'm with you here. Noir almost seems to be beyond good and evil, about people who have given up on or forgotten them in their single minded pursuit of something, usually one of the seven deadly sins: greed, lust, etc. Of course, in most cases they pay for ignoring those moral values, so maybe the moral order is renewed.
