    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.)
