Letterboxd’s Top 50 Film-Noir Films

“Funny how people get with you once you’re dead“

An accompaniment to the Letterboxds Top 250 which sadly contains also very few Film-Noir movies

No shorts, no TV series or movies, no YouTube videos, no filmed stage productions, no reissues, no trailer compilations, no behind-the-scenes documentaries, nor anything else that isn't really a feature film. All entries must be at least 40 minutes in length.To ensure this list isn't filled with films with very few ratings, this only includes films viewed by at least 1,000 users and with at least 100 likes.To avoid arguments, the films must be categorised as "Film-Noir" by Imdb, Letterboxd sadly doesn’t have the genre.
