1,000 Noir Films: They Shot Dark Pictures, Didn’t They?

I'll try to keep this Letterboxd version of it as up to date as possible.

There are already notable differences between the two lists although the criteria used for inclusion has also changed. Whether this new version of the list is an improvement or not is up for debate but it's very welcome nonetheless! I'll just quote the site:
