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). This article is about the 1942 film. ... Rebecca is an Academy Award–winning 1940 psychological thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock as his first American project. ... Suspicion (1941) is a film noir directed by Alfred Hitchcock starring Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine as a married couple. ... Spellbound is a 1945 psychological thriller and mystery film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. ...


The relevance of the term to any films made before or after the "classic period" of the 1940s and 1950s is still debated. The terms used here to describe various periods and subgenres 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. Exceptions are noted and, where possible, the original production title is given alongside the translated or alternative title which accompanied its U.S. release. American cinema has had a profound effect on cinema across the world since the early 20th century. ...

Film Noir - Films (2169 words)
Film noir was also derived from the crime/gangster and detective/mystery sagas from the 1930s (i.e., Little Caesar (1930), Public Enemy (1931) and Scarface (1932)), but very different in tone and characterization.
The criminal, violent, misogynistic, hard-boiled, or greedy perspectives of anti-heroes in film noir were a metaphoric symptom of society's evils, with a strong undercurrent of moral conflict, purposelessness and sense of injustice.
Film noir films were marked visually by expressionistic lighting, deep-focus or depth of field camera work, disorienting visual schemes, jarring editing or juxtaposition of elements, ominous shadows, skewed camera angles (usually vertical or diagonal rather than horizontal), circling cigarette smoke, existential sensibilities, and unbalanced or moody compositions.
NeoNoir (1081 words)
The sense that 'noir' created in the 70s and 80s was a 'retro' and nostalgic avoidance of contemporary experience has been encouraged by the often-cited essay, 'Postmodernism and Consumer Society', in which Frederic Jameson assigns to film noir a central role in the vocabulary of commercialized postmodernism.
The contemporary refashioning of noir themes is a manifestation of the flexibility and responsiveness to social change that have characterised noir from its inception and of the continued vitality of the form.
The transformations of the genre in neo-noir have helped to clarify some of the constant, recognisable elements of 'the noir vision', most importantly the moral ambivalence of the protagonist and his (or in neo-noir often her) ill-fated relationship with a wider society that itself is guilty of corruption and criminality.
