Film Noir Ranked

Started for a list, rules at letterboxd.com/thomasmccallum/list/letterboxd-community-top-25-film-noir-1/

This is possibly my favorite style of movie.

I have a kinda narrow idea of what counts as film noir. Gangster movies are not noir, crime movies are not noir, but there does have to be crime, so that leaves out movies like Sweet Smell of Success.

The first four are the epitome of noir, and anyone who doesn't have them in the top four spots are wrong.

There are 10 action films in this list.

  • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    40

  • Harper

    47

  • Blast of Silence

    48

  • Murder by Contract

    52

  • The Enforcer

    56

  • The River's Edge

    59

  • Force of Evil

  • The Lineup

    61

  • Slightly Scarlet
