Modern passion noirs

Far too much work to construct a list of recent ones (20-30 years old), but if I happen to fall across one it's easy to mention it. One such that I saw recently is Arturo Ripstein's "Deep Crimson" (1996) (Profundo carmesí), which uses the story of "The Honeymoon Killers". This movie is very well done, well above average. Mucho offbeat.
Which reminds me of an early Bergman movie I also saw that shares nothing with the Ripstein movie, yet is also a noir with a love story at its heart. That's "It Rains on Our Love" (1946). His "Port of Call" (1948) is another good one that's a dark love story. Maybe these are not read as noirs by elite critics, I do not know, but they're really fine movies, dark, human, deep.
