30 Days Has Noirvember: Kent Gowran

Five Noirs from the second half of the 80s

Drugstore Cowboy - Gus Van Sant (1989)
“There’s nothing more life-affirming than getting the shit kicked outta ya.”

River's Edge - Tim Hunter (1986)
Keanu’s best performance.
“Mother fucker! Food eater!”

Near Dark - Kathryn Bigelow (1987)
“The night has its price.”

Angel Heart - Alan Parker (1987)
“Hey, only cops and bad news don’t knock.”

The Hitcher - Robert Harmon (1986)
“Why are you doing this to me?”
“You’re a smart kid. Figure it out.”

Kent Gowran the founder and former publisher of Shotgun Honey has not mellowed with age. Less fat, more bastard. Probably wearing a black t-shirt and drinking darker coffee. I get a lot of good recs from the dude. You would too if you followed him on Twitter @KentGowran.
