Re: hop aboard the z-train

PS: Hammett and Chandler are hardboiled writers, too. They're thinking of thompson, cain, chandler, hammett and ANY OTHER writer of that ilk when they're making ANY of their noir films; it's a genre that appeals to them, but they nevertheless allow elements of other genres that they love (e.g. absurd comedy à la Duck Soup, and yes, westerns as well) to seep in. It's a big amalgamation of genre, just as Tarantino's flicks are. Ultimately, then, all of their films are practically ABOUT generic form, moreso than any "bigger" themes that transcend commentary on form/art/medium itself.
