What is noir?

“Noir is all about unusual settings, oddball characters and cutting commentary.  There doesn’t need to be a warm and fuzzy finale.”

Great quote from noir author Andrew Bergen in his recent interview over at Australian Comics Journal.com.  I couldn’t have put it better myself.

Does anyone else have their own definition of noir?
