We watched Brick, which was semi-successful in creating teenage noir. Its main problem was there can't be such a thing unless new devices substitute for rather than replicate the ones in adult noir. The conventions of adult noir seem feigned when used by children. Still it had some good acting and good moments.

Reading Three Junes, which was highly recommended to me. Still the best book of late is Winter's Bone by Daniel Woodrell. It submitted a story today to Identity Theory. Also sent a copy of the novel to the Iowa Writers Contest. Haha.
