I saw this the other day and dared not post it after the last "top" list I posted that Was certainly problematic...and drew well deserved condemnation..this one is more perverse than the last if that's possible...It's title hould be "Film Noir Helter-Skelter". Did I miss Rififi or Brighton Rock? ...and it cannot be in any sensible order, and as someone said, too many new-noirs at the cost of inclusion of many good classic noirs...Odds Against Tomorrow, The Line Up, Armored Car Robbery, Railroaded, The Dark Corner, Touché Pas au Grisbi, Wages of Fear, Hi & Lo, To name just a few of my favs.
I agree with Murky that despite the absurdity of the list itself, many of the comments on the film's were worth reading. Definitely what I'd call a list of Films Noir for the millenial generation
