Nightmare Town

(Nightmare Town). The idea that The Castle, for example is a film noire, but with violence and crime at an infinite remove from the reported action. In Nightmare Town the veneer between strange proceedings and its covert illegal intent is very thin and the violence is now; in The Castle, there is no present violence and there might be only that strange veneer, the criminality being so covert as to be undiscoverable or perhaps not really there.
