Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

I just saw Kiss Kiss Bang Bang for the first time. I thought it was an interesting take on the classic Los Angeles film noir. I usually dont like the fourth wall being broken by the main character, but much like it worked in "Double Imndemnity", it works here. Michelle Monahan is great, and the script is unpredictable. I saw a lot of themes that have previously been used, such as the incest reference (Chinatown), the feminine gangster (Peter Lorre in The Maltese Falcon), and the female co- investigater (Ingrid Bergman in Notorious). It was an entertaining movie, but not my favorite example of a modern nior.
