    1. More solid perspectives on film noir here. I particularly liked---Stephen Farber on 'Violence and the Bitch Goddess,' an essay on violence and anxiety about women in film noir;---Elizabeth Ward on 'The Unintended Femme Fatale,' which gives a view of films where the fatal roles are reversed or subverted;---and William Corey on 'Girl Power: Female-Centered Neo-Noir,' which surveys women centred post-noirs of the 1980s and 90s.


    2. Essays old and new, of variable quality. The most interesting are a piece by Francis M. Nevins that tracks the differences between the various films based on Cornell Woolrich novels and the original texts; and Grant Tracey's entry, which begins to help me make sense of what Sam Fuller is up to.
