    I think Eric hit the perfect analogy of noir, he said:

    >>You should never be able to see exactly what's coming, even though you know what kind of ending there will inevitably be. Sort of like a chess game or the sweet pain of watching your football team play their heart out and still lose.<<

    I agree with the football analogy more than the chess game. For me, I would rather lose a hard fought game than blow someone off the board.
