Re: Fort Apache, not noir.

I pulled out Fort Apache. This is not a neo-noir. It's entertaining. Paul Newman reminds me of his Rocky Graziano pic. Pam Grier is quite good as a hooker very high on some drug who kills 2 cops right at the outset and then wanders around throughout. It's episodic dramatizing police work in a difficult precinct, with varying cop attitudes highlighted. But neo-noir, no, not in the first 30 minutes.
Fonda's Fort Apache is more noir than this is.
