Film Noir - My collection so far.

The murky, conflicted, yet stylish world of film noir is something that i was mesmerized by from the very first time i experienced it. It's a world where the imagery is as bold as the topics and where the polished surface is scratched to expose the seedy underbelly of a disillusioned post-war society. Were women may look all dolled up and frail but are tough independent cookies, where crime lords and thugs rule the city from the shadows and honest men make really bad choices. This list will grow until i have the perfect no filler collection of a genre who's lows are few and far between but highs are plentiful.
