I love Murakami's Hard Boiled Wonderland and The End of the World. Which is probably why I love the idea of this jam! I'm curious about what noir works people here are going to draw inspiration from.
For me it's going to be Inherent Vice. There's just something about that film. "Inherent Vice is a postcard of the sun going down on California." Someone, somewhere, once said that and the image just stuck with me.
