List of film noir


List of film noir

The following is a list of films and television series often described as "film noir".

Film noir is a loosely defined category that refers primarily to stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize moral ambiguity, sexual motivations and an overall pessimistic tone. The original 1955 definition by Borde and Chaumeton noted a requirement for "oneiric, strange, erotic, ambivalent, and cruel" elements in a film noir. Pappas in 2005 declared film noir to be "the language of losers...always about the same things: Sex. Violence. Money." Despite decades of debate between these two definitions, no true consensus on what constitutes film noir is generally accepted today. Thus, the applicability of the term "film noir" to characterize any given movie is subjective. The term was used neither in the American movie industry nor in American film criticism during most of the 1940s and 1950s, the period when the pictures now regarded as classics of film noir were created. For many films there is substantial difference of opinion on whether or not they should be categorized as noir; notable films from the "classic period" for which this is the case include "Casablanca" (1942) and the Alfred Hitchcock films "Rebecca" (1940), "Suspicion" (1941), and "Spellbound" (1945).

The relevance of the term to any movies (and television programs) made before or after the "classic period" of the 1940s and 1950s is still debated. The terms used here to describe various periods and variations of film noir are not definitive. They are used as an aid to navigating the list rather than as a critical argument.

As befits the above description, the following list is composed largely of U.S. productions. Movies described as noir made outside the United States are also listed, without any pretense to comprehensiveness. Multinational productions are identified only by the lead country, determined first by the primary language of the film, next by the nationality of the director.
