Wire 106: S01E03 “The Buys”

1 min read


Paul and I discussed "The Buys" last Thursday, and above is the video. We range in our discussion and I just did a pretty extensive post on it that I lost in Known (sometimes I am spoiled by WordPress). I'll keep this one very short. Below are the three video clips we discussed in some detail. After that we explored the recurrence of noir aesthetics through sight and sound that Paul breaks down nicely in this post. I want to talk more about the idea of "institutional noir" ---which I'm starting to feel is one name for the aesthetic of Simon's series.
