the origin of noir

Posted to WritersAndGenres




chandler is the master of the one-liners. makes it look easy, which it is definitely not. also, i probably dont have to tell you to read hammett.

these authors' books invented noir (well, i guess not. but at least they invented american noir), which is one of my favorite film genres. something about the classic romanticism mixed with the wrongness of everything.

and, the legs.
