    Freelance editor and blogger. I've been reading mystery and detective stories since I was a child. I read every Nancy Drew mystery I could get my hands on when I was young. Since taking Richard Edwards's "Summer of Darkness" course in the summer of 2015 and watching noir faithfully ever since, I think I can say that I am no longer new to film noir and neo-noir.

    I've seen it! I think I've seen all his films. One of my favorites is Lone Star. Another is Limbo. I had the chance to ask him once why he ended Limbo as he did, and he gave me the answer I had already guessed. Not everyone liked it, but I sure did.
