@MT- good no The Big Sleep; however, no The Big Heat, Brute Force, The Glass Key or The Killers. I told you our tastes were different! You can't include The Thin Man on this criteria but I don't think I know how you feel about it. Any comment?
I enjoyed Thin Man, but not enough to seek out the sequels. I kind of have a pet peeve about alcohol/drunk humor, so it's to Thin Man's credit that it didn't completely annoy me.
How do you feel about Noir-vember 2?
I was just thinking about that as I drifted off to sleep last night, actually! I'm inclined to do it, but two things give me pause:
1) By the end of last November, I was getting burnt out on noir. While I like the "purity" of devoting an entire month to a genre, I might mix it up a little more this time
2) I've now seen all the "major" noirs, and I fear that a repeat of Noir-vember will be scraping the bottom of the barrel for me. Still, there's bound to be some hidden gems, and maybe I'll chuck in a few neo-noirs (still need to see Devil in a Blue Dress) to keep it fresh
