Apologies in advance for the lack of modesty exhibited in what follows, but Losey's M received 10 points in the 2005 Noir Top 25 poll, all from my ballot. I rated it in the "16-20 tier" for the Top 25.
The overripe staginess of the finale is, to my mind, one of the most harrowing moments in all of film noir.
No doubt that this film is in the Top 100 noirs, and quite probably in the Top 50.
