A while back, we did a piece isolating some of the best, most biting dialogue from the world of film noir, that dark, often hidden underbelly of society portrayed in movies from the forties and fifties where no one can be trusted and everyone talks wise.

You all seemed to like the piece so much we thought we’d give you another installment.

So load your gat, don your trench coat, and join us once more in the drizzly, treacherous world of noir.
