Much more the latter. My entire life is fantasy compensation.
Really I just love any distinctive self-contained culture that can be easily imitated as a form of mockery, or placed in a seemingly random, unrelated context so that its endearing absurdities provide a comedic purpose. Funny, easily identifiable accents and turns of phrase specific to that culture really help. I really especially like any that seems to take itself deadly seriously, as is the case with much film noir. It lends itself really well to ENTP-style, satirical humor, I think.
If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
I tend to love movies in general, especially if they are well done. I'm not particularly drawn to the Noir genre more than the others though. I thought The Maltese Falcon was an excellent film, but I'm not out there trying to find every Noir movie ever made.
