Noir Quote of the Week!

This post is from the discussion of The Dark Knight that’s currently going on at my favorite noir reading list. While I haven’t seen the film yet, the quote just makes me pleased as Punch:

I think that the idea that a super hero story can’t be noir simply because it’s a super hero story is one of the most intellectually retarded things I’ve read in a long time. There’s enough grief, loss, and ruin in The Dark Knight to give Cornell Woolrich geek-wood, and that’s saying something.
–Mark Finn posting on Rara Avis

That’s beautiful: “enough… to give Cornell Woolrich geek-wood.” Were Mr. Woolrich here today, he’d be writing for DC Comics and loving it (the sick bastard.) Thank you Mark Finn!
