Pardon, but . . . if the definition of classic noir is a man of questionable morality is brought to his demise by the actions and his attraction to an amoral woman, then it does. I wasn't suggesting for a minute that it was brillant, just fun. Just so you know, I liked "Lola" a lot and thought "Zoe" pretty much sucked. I was wasn't being entirely serious -- because I agree with much of your post -- and I'll make that clearer in future posts.
