Article: The Modern Noir Has Atrophied

Angelica Jade Bastién has written an interesting article over at Vulture. She looks at neo noir and what is missing from it lately compared to the classic noir period. She gives a very interesting point of view with some great information. Though I don’t agree with everything she has to say, it does make for some interesting reading and discussion.  What do you think of her take on noir and neo noir?

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I agree with the thesis about neo-noir having the surface but not the depth of classic noir. And I’d add that it loves violence-for-violence’s sake too much.

    Love this quote: “Ultimately, it’s a parody lacking the sincerity needed to give its pulpy center meaning.”
