    Most people have no idea what "film noir" really is. These films have most of the essential elements (femme fatale, double and triple cross, urban setting, bad decisions, cast of quirky characters, night settings). Most are from the 40s and 50s. Few real film noir got made after that.

    • The Maltese Falcon (1941) Don't say there's no such thing as a good remake. Dashiell Hammett's classic detective novel was first adapted in 1931, but the one we all remember is the 1941 version featuring Humphrey Bogart as jaded private investigator Sam Spade.
    • The Woman in the Window (1944) When the film noir took off in the 1940s it seemed to be able to get away with more scandalous words, more seductive sleepwear and more hard drinking because usually those who’d done wrong were punished at the end.
    • Laura (1944) As World War II was ramping up Hollywood was a refuge for many filmmakers who’d put a massive stamp on the US film industry (as evidenced by how many times Fritz Lang shows up on this list after he fled Germany a day after being asked by Joseph Goebbels to head Nazi Germany’s propaganda film machine; he couldn't decline so he just straight up and left).
    • Double Indemnity (1944) Double Indemnity is an incredibly fun watch, especially if, like me, you first saw star Fred MacMurray on the wholesome My Three Sons on Nick at Nite.
  6. Though Sunset Boulevard is among director Billy Wilder's best films, purists don't always consider it film noir. If you check out the 30 Best Neo-Noir Films, you'll see that one line between the parent and child genres is self-awareness. Sunset Boulevard is deeply self-aware, marking an early evolution of the genre's sensibilities. You can even glean this from the fact that it's not based on any book or novella.
