From the "Non-Blonde Misc." folder
Just routine maintenance on the "Non-Blonde"
folder. But there are some stunners in here.
(Isn't the Venetian blind shadow effect supposed
to mean something viscerally significant in the
visual language of film noir? Doesn't it indicate
a social, moral, or geopolitical stratification?
Doesn't it dice up the hard-boiled detective's
psychological background or vivisect his angst
or ennui or some such B.S.?)
