IX - The End of the Dream
The promise of the 60s has died, giving way to a new, distrustful era - fertile ground for a new noir movement to take root. Two films stand at forefront of a new era of hardboiled crime movies, each with their own idiosyncratic take on the private detective. The Long Goodbye and Chinatown reinvent noir and show new depths to the cynicism that can be found in its shadows. Welcome to the end of the dream.
It's okay with me.
