Article: The 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time

Paste has made a list: “The Best Film Noirs of All Time”. This list mixes in classic film noir with more modern neo noir films for an interesting list. I like the films on the list, but may disagree with the order. What do you think of the list? How many of these films have you seen?

  1. Hmmm. Awful list. The modern and neo-noirs sit very uncomfortably with the classic noirs, there are far too many noirs from the last 20 years. To exclude films like High Sierra and I Wake Up Screaming and Cry of the City and many more in place of much later films for the sake of it is stupid. As usual Orson Wells is everywhere like a critic’s wet dream, and although Double Indemnity is probably the most quintessential noir, everyone knows that Murder My Sweet is it’s most perfect masterpiece…?
