Film Noir

A genre that I am relatively new too yet it is something I deeply love from the movies I've seen/own. Especially those from the 50's and 60's. I love the black and white backdrop, the blurring of lines between the police and criminals, the vigilante anti-heroism, the gritty demeanor, the fisticuffs, the slick haircuts, the trench coats, the tough talk, the plots and sub plots, the mystery, the overall mood and atmosphere of it. Here's a few of my favorites. If you have any recommendations from the 50's or 60's I'd appreciate it.
1Bohren & Der Club of Gore
Sunset Mission


1941.The Maltese Falcon. Humphrey Bogart man....
2Bohren & Der Club of Gore
Sunset Mission


1955. Kiss Me Deadly. Ralph Meeker's womanizing lunkhead character and the surprise sci-fi twist make this worth owning.
3Bohren & Der Club of Gore
Sunset Mission


1953. Fritz Lang's The Big Heat. Young Lee Marvin plays a great henchman, Alexander Scourby a great Italian mobster and Glenn Ford is just flat out a boss as a vengeful, ex detective.
4Bohren & Der Club of Gore
Black Earth


1967.Le Samourai. Alain Delon is the king of cool.
5Bohren & Der Club of Gore
Black Earth


Stanley Kubrick's The Killing.
6Bohren & Der Club of Gore
Black Earth


1964. Pale Flower. Damn great film about a yakuza released from prison.
