Marilyn StasioHuston isn't as noir as he probably wants to be. Web has a sentimental streak that would shame Dickens, and the miseries he's had to bear are absurdly overstated. But the outlandish characters—from Web's trippy parents to the noble soul who trusts him with a job—are brazen originals, and the dialogue is the roar of a death-defying talent.
