First of all, I second Scott's comments, great read!

I did some of those 48 Hour Film Festivals some years ago (need to do that again sometime, so much fun) and we were drawn to do a Film Noir. Now, everybody who get's drawn for that category always, always does a remake of Maltese Falcon (except for one group that did an awesome Frank Miller inspired story). I made the argument that a lot of these dark, gritty early 70's films were a great evolution of the genre so that's what we did. Some of the films we considered as inspiration--

French Connection (71)
Dirty Harry (71)
Taxi Driver (76)
Death Wish (74)
The Conversation (74)
Chinatown (74)
Mean Streets (73)
The Verdict (82)

We ended up winning best use of genre. Obviously in those projects there is always stuff you wish you would have done better, but the visually style in that flick was awesome! A lot of fun to work on.
