      You mean the 2001 film by the Coen Brothers?

      That’s neo-noir. These two lists have been about CLASSIC film noir.

    Guessing they won’t all be available from my local Blockbusters then…

      You might be able to catch one or two in their entirety on Youtube, although it would be broken up into ten minute segments. But hey, it’s free. 🙂

      I caught at least two of his film noir movies there from the earlier list.

      Great list, btw. 😀

    In a Lonely Place is one of my favorite movies of all time, I’m so happy it was included because I think it is often overlooked. Love it!

    The Third Man and Touch of Evil are my favorite by far. Thanks for including them in your list. Orson Welles is ingenious (though I know he didn’t direct The Third Man…). I was surprised that both Hitchcock’s Vertigo and Huston’s The Maltese Falcon weren’t on this list. Both of them have dark cinematography and are expertly told detective stories.

      This is a sequel list.

      The original list included “The Maltese Falcon.”

      “Vertigo” is neo-noir, so it wasn’ eligible.

    Wow, superb list. Asphalt Jungle is my film noir movie number 1.

    Second: The birds. First time I watched that movie I was scared to go outside. Really good movie.

    Anyways, thanks for sharing 🙂

    I am amazed that there is no mention of “Double Indemnity” starring Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck

    My personal favourite film noir of all time is Double Indemnity, You can’t top it. Good list overall.

      Have you read the book? The book by James M. Cain is one of my favourites as well- two of my favourite movies Double Indemnity and Mildred Pierce led to my discovery of his writing – sooooooo good.
