But, then again, we can speculate in some combination of good fun and empiricism as to what general types of consumables (food, drink, etc.) might constitute the range of a film genre. Are there any white wines, for example, that could possibly figure in a comparison with film noir? (And shouldn't we figure that with a name containing the word "noir" we should figure that the Pinot Noir grape varietal is the most appropriate choice for such an association? Or would folks object and make a case for cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel, shiraz, or sangiovese?
Of course, once we do that, we might be on the slippery slope to a more specific kind of product placement...and we might find that we've become the thing we shun.
You won't find any of this in the article below. You won't find any orthodox film noirs discussed, either--which is probably just as well...though it's clear that the author might be slightly over-enamored with pinot noir.
Happy Xmas to all, and please make your beverage selections based on criteria that are blissfully unlinked to your film watching, eh??
