    Donąt subscribe to that one either and find it very narrow and restrictive...If noir is always noir regardless of the medium what are you gonna say about western noir and for example would you use the same criteria than the ones for novels in the case of The Wild Bunch or The Proposition to take two of the Śnoirą or Śnoirrishą or Śdarką...whatever...westerns... If the mediums are different, the treatments are different too and some of the esthetic consequences are practiced and experienced in different ways...and how would you account for Śnoirą for other Śartsą such as painting, music...I donąt think the literary definition set (whatever one is used) can be readily transposed...
