Down these mean streets a man must go.
Any fans of film noir or hardboiled crime fiction? Post your recommendations, views and thoughts here.
My favourites films are:
"Kiss Me Deadly"
"The Postman Always Rings Twice"
"The Big Sleep"
"Farewell, My Lovely"
"The Woman in the Window"
"In A Lonely Place"
I have all the films you list MTDS, except Mildred Pierce, never seen that.
All classics of course, i think my personal favourite of the list is In a Lonely Place. Bogart is outstanding.
Other great ones you haven't mentioned are -
This Gun For Hire
Out of the Past
The Blue Dahlia
I thought This Gun For Hire and The Big Sleep were great films, Personal faves are Key Largo, The Killers and The Big Sleep but i'd rate Kubrick's The Killing, which i see as Film Noir above alot of them.
Saw Kiss Me Deadly earlier in the year - blew me away (like a nuclear blast ...)!!! Grabbed the Criterion straight after the first viewing. I'm on the lookout now for noir as nutty as that . . .
I now have a shiny new website! Or check out my DeviantArt profile if you please...
A few of my faves that haven't yet been mentioned...
High and Low
The Maltese Falcon
Sweet Smell of Success
The Third Man
L.A. Confidential is a decent modern noir, too.
I really want to get into watching more noir, as it's fast becoming a favourite sub-genre of mine.
There are a few mentioned here that I haven't seen, that I'm definitely going to seek out.
There's a "new" James M. Cain book found, heard about it on NPR last week:
