An insurance representative lets himself be talked into a murder/insurance fraud scheme that arouses an insurance investigator's suspicions. (107 mins.)
Director: Billy Wilder
“ Очень колоритная классика нуар, один из лучших фильмов жанра. Хорошая детективная история, типажные герои, закадровая исповедь главного героя, правильная концовка — очень тру. ” - jvetrau
 
2.
The Set-Up (1949)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X

When the police in a German city are unable to catch a child-murderer, other criminals join in the manhunt. (117 mins.)
Director: Fritz Lang
“ Мощнейшая киноклассика от Фрица Ланга и его первый звуковой фильм, ярко и экспрессивно рассказывающий историю маньяка, а точнее то как его появление повлияло на жизнь немецкого города. Куча интересных операторских приемов, удачное и аккуратное построение саспенса (привет дешевым кондовым приемам Хичкока), интересные приметы времени (в Германии еще есть много американской культуры). Фильм отчасти называют прото-нуаром. ” - jvetrau
 
4.
Chinatown (1974)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
A private detective hired to expose an adulterer finds himself caught up in a web of deceit, corruption, and murder. (130 mins.)

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
A screenwriter is hired to rework a faded silent film star's script only to find himself developing a dangerous relationship. (110 mins.)
Director: Billy Wilder
“ Кино с большой буквы, которое отлично смотрится и сейчас, без скидок на то что это классика. Очень и очень мощный сюжет с инфернальной историей увядающей актрисы немого кино, который не менее здорово сыгран ключевыми персонажами — причем без частого для того времени переигрывания. ” - jvetrau
 
6.
Where the Sidewalk Ends (1950)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Det. Sgt. Mark Dixon wants to be something his old man wasn't: a guy on the right side of the law. But Dixon's vicious nature will get the better of him. (95 mins.)
Director: Otto Preminger
“ Добротная классика нуара с историей о случайно убившем подозреваемого полицейском. Выверенные сцены, красивая мрачность, яркие персонажи, много уместного юмора. ” - jvetrau
 
7.
Touch of Evil (1958)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
A stark, perverse story of murder, kidnapping, and police corruption in a Mexican border town. (95 mins.)
Director: Orson Welles
“ Крутая история о противостоянии двух полицейских от Орсона Уэллса, в которой он, как обычно, сыграл одну из главных ролей. Крайне интересная работа с камерой и постановка кадров, куча раннего рок-н-ролла и соответствующего антуража, обильный, но аккуратно построенный саспенс, неожиданная роль Марлен Дитрих. Говорят, это последний из снятых классических нуаров. Захватывающе. ” - jvetrau
 
8.
Crossfire (1947)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X

Director: Brian De Palma
“ Пересмотрел после того как увидел много классики нуара и переложил #dvd из стопки на выбрасывание в любимые. Фантастически крутая картинка и постановка кадров, очень (что главное для жанра) атмосферный ход истории с почти всегда уместным актерским составом — мощный #noir по отличной книге. Его главная проблема — чересчур много ответвлений сюжета, которые здорово смотрятся будучи погруженным в историю здесь и сейчас, но разваливаются когда пытаешься оценить рассказ в целом. Только для любителей жанра. ” - jvetrau
 
12.
Murder, My Sweet (1944)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
After being hired to find an ex-con's former girlfriend, Philip Marlowe is drawn into a deeply complex web of mystery and deceit. (95 mins.)

13.
Dark Passage (1947)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
A man convicted of murdering his wife escapes from prison and works with a woman to try and prove his innocence. (106 mins.)
Director: Delmer Daves
“ Новаторски снятый нуар с Богартом/Bacall, одним из лучших кинодуэтов ever — первые 40 минут история ведется от первого лица с типичными приемами 3D-шутера, а лицо Богарта появляется только после первого часа. Сюжет простоват, но то как все сыграно и снято — очень и здорово. ” - jvetrau
 
14.
Out of the Past (1947)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
A private eye escapes his past to run a gas station in a small town, but his past catches up with him. Now he must return to the big city world of danger, corruption, double crosses and duplicitous dames. (97 mins.)

Private detective Philip Marlowe is hired by a rich family. Before the complex case is over, he's seen murder, blackmail, and what might be love. (114 mins.)
Director: Howard Hawks
“ Сильно переоцененная классика нуара. Несмотря на хороший состав и оригинальную историю от Реймонда Чендлера, Фолкнер адаптировал ее крайне слабо — вместо сюжета и интересной истории получился набор обрывочных событий и зачастую никак не вписанных в сюжет персонажей. Спасает только дуэт Bogart/Bacall. ” - jvetrau
 
21.
The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
A married woman and a drifter fall in love, then plot to murder her husband. Once the deed is done, they must live with the consequences of their actions. (113 mins.)
Director: Tay Garnett
“ Скучноватый и бессвязный нуар, хотя Lana Turner безумно хороша. Звание классики не отрабатывает, правда, говорят, что просто экранизация не удалась. ” - jvetrau
 
22.
The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
The sensuous wife of a lunch wagon proprietor and a rootless drifter begin a sordidly steamy affair and conspire to murder her Greek husband. (122 mins.)
Director: Bob Rafelson
“ Шикарнейший римейк достаточно топорно сделанной классики нуара. Джек Николсон здорово похож на типичных актеров 40х, остальные декорации и персонажи тоже отлично стилизованы под оригинальное время. Сюжет в римейке стал связным, актеры — некартонными, дух жанра сохранился, так что это одна из редких целесообразных переделок. ” - jvetrau
 
23.
The Killers (1946)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X

A major heist goes off as planned, until bad luck and double crosses cause everything to unravel. (112 mins.)
Director: John Huston
“ Один из важнейших нуаров от режиссера Джона Хьюстона, ставший легендарным кроме всего прочего благодаря своей сцене методичного тихого ограбления. Все классические элементы жанра представлены в лучшем виде, а персонажи особенно хороши. Забавно было увидеть совсем молодую Мэрилин Монро в одной из первых ролей. ” - jvetrau
 
31.
Rififi (1955)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
Four men plan a technically perfect crime, but the human element intervenes... (118 mins.)
Director: Jules Dassin
“ Один из важнейших фильмов в жанре ограблений от мастера нуаров Jules Dassin — его копировали и упоминали бесконечное количество фильмов и режиссеров. Яркие персонажи, отличная история и, конечно, само молчаливое 20-30-минутное ограбление — таким и должен быть саспенс, не прибегающий к дешевым хичкоковским трюкам. Фильм должен был снимать Мельвилль, но в итоге не получил эту работу — зато позже постоянно делал отсылы к нему. ” - jvetrau
 
32.
In a Lonely Place (1950)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X

Director: Allen Baron
“ Малобюджетный нуар о наемном убийце, главный герой и одновременно режиссер в котором сильно похож на молодого Де Ниро. Дешево, просто, но очень атмосферно. ” - jvetrau
 
39.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
Ready to catch a train to his hometown, a washed up boxer tells us about the strange and twisty events that happened to him the past couple of days. (67 mins.)

40.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X

Director: Jules Dassin
“ Нуар о криминальном Лондоне и мелком мошеннике, пытающемся открыть свое прибыльное дело. Много интересного колорита подпольщины, яркие персонажи и игра актеров, ну и сама история ничего. ” - jvetrau
 
41.
Lady in the Lake (1947)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
The lady editor of a crime magazine hires Philip Marlowe to find the wife of her boss. The private detective soon finds himself involved in murder. (105 mins.)
“ Первый фильм, снятый "от первого лица" а-ля 3D-шутеры. Действия мало, история простая, сыграно картонно, но в целом занятно. ” - jvetrau
 
42.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
Los Angeles private eye Philip Marlowe is hired by paroled convict Moose Malloy to find his girlfriend Velma, former seedy nightclub dancer. (95 mins.)
Director: Dick Richards
“ Очень и очень приятная солянка из нескольких детективов Реймонда Чендлера с Робертом Митчемом в главной роли и кучей звезд на второстепенных впридачу, среди которых особенно здорово выглядит молодая Шарлотта Рэмплинг. Красивая стилизация с обилием сочного неона. ” - jvetrau

A detective examines the mysterious death of George Reeves, the star of the television series Adventures of Superman. (126 mins.)
Director: Allen Coulter
“ Не особо выразительно рассказанная, но сама по себе отличная история первого актера, сыгравшего Супермена. Фильм вышел почти одновременно с "Черной орхидеей" на близкую тему, и хотя куда более спокоен и не имеет фирменной нуаровской атмосферы, стилизация очень и очень приятная. Режиссер Ален Коултер (снял кучу серий "Sopranos") назвал это "нуаром дневного света". А сам фильм был бы на порядок лучше без не особо уместного Адриана Броуди. ” - jvetrau
 
47.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X

An ex-con trying to go straight is framed for a million dollar armored car robbery and must go to Mexico in order to unmask the real culprits. (99 mins.)
Director: Phil Karlson
“ Мощная классика фильмов про ограбления от одного из лучших нуар-режиссеров жанра Фила Карлсона. После самого ограбления, правда, сильно спадает градус экшна, но сама история очень и очень хороша, в постановке куча интересных ходов, а среди грабителей — тогда еще молодые герои вестернов Ли Ван Клиф и Jack Elam. Ну и постер, конечно, очень сочный. А если сумасшедшие антитабачники дойдут до вырезания сцен из старых фильмов, тут останется всего минут десять. ” - jvetrau
 
49.
Chicago Confidential (1957)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X

Crooks plan and execute a daring race-track robbery. (85 mins.)
Director: Stanley Kubrick
“ Настоящая бомба — чумовой боевик про четко спланированное ограбление букмекеров от Стенли Кубрика, которому Тарантино посвятил своих "Бешеных псов" и в целом позаимствовал инновационную технику рассказа истории от лица разных персонажей. А сцена с трехсекундной перестрелкой насмерть — точь-в-точь как из "Бесславных ублюдков" в немецком баре. A-W-E-S-O-M-E! ” - jvetrau

The rise and fall of Stanton Carlisle, a mentalist whose lies and deceit prove to be his downfall. (110 mins.)
Director: Edmund Goulding
“ Мощно, завораживающе сыгранная история взлета и падения фокусника-психолога, в которой три роковые для него женщины проводят его по спирали — от подающего надежды до списанного алкоголика — точно тому же пути, что прошел его предшественник. Tyrone Power, сыгравший главного героя, фантастически харизматичен — очень живой образ рассказчика. ” - jvetrau
 
57.
The Stranger (1946)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
An investigator from the War Crimes Commission travels to Connecticut to find an infamous Nazi. (95 mins.)
Director: Orson Welles
“ Занятная полу-театральная послевоенная агитка Орсона Уэллса, в которой военный детектив выслеживает спрятавшегося в Америке нацистского палача. Очень комичная наигранность сцен, особенно концовка на часовой башне. ” - jvetrau

New York City film noir about two detectives investigating the death of an attractive young woman. The apparent suicide turns out to be murder. (96 mins.)
Director: Jules Dassin
“ Здорово сделанный полу-документальный детектив, в деталях рассказывающий об одном из полицейских расследований. Снят полностью на улицах Нью-Йорка, с минимумом постановочных декораций (операторы снимали из машин с затемненными стеклами чтобы не спугнуть естественные действия прохожих) — благодаря этому смотрится особенно интересно. ” - jvetrau
