Allan Guthrie said that the newsweek article concludes:
"More likely, noir has just expanded its territory to include
cops and crooks and all those so-called innocent bystanders caught in the
crossfire. Noir isn't a genre any longer. It's claimed its place as one of
the twin strands of our cultural DNA, the dark side of the American Dream."
I think that noir always was the dark side of the American Dream.
(Now I have to go read the rest of the article.)
