The difference between crime films & noir

From Roger Ebert’s “Detour (1945)” (The Chicago Sun-Times: 7 June 1998):

The difference between a crime film and a noir film is that the bad guys in crime movies know they’re bad and want to be, while a noir hero thinks he’s a good guy who has been ambushed by life.
