Favourite Films Noir

by Mike Archibald

Like most people these days, I’m giving “Noir” a pretty broad definition: a morbid crime drama, shot in b/w, with either
A) A Germanic and/or Poetic Realism influence
B) A tendency toward the morally counterintuitive for at least a decent amount of the film’s running time.
or
C) Both the above.

Need to re-evaluate: DOUBLE INDEMNITY, GILDA, Siodmak Noirs, IN A LONELY PLACE, STRANGE IMPERSONATION, ON DANGEROUS GROUND, LAURA, SORRY, WRONG NUMBER, THE SET-UP, THE WINDOW

Not in order of preference, except for maybe the #1 spot.
