Chandler's novel doesn't end with guns a-blazing and the world in flames -- it ends quietly, with a man, alone, realizing he's probably ineffectual and no better than the "nastiness" he rails against. It's sad and poignant and bittersweet, but also hard and dark, and it feels like noir to me.

Anybody else see the 2 hr finale of "24" last night?
