My Film Noir collection

I LOVE NOIR!! And I mean it, I love it! I love the style, I love the feeling of opression, the visuals, the photography, everything.

I don't have a huge collection of the classic noir, I'm still working on it, but I saw lots of movies of the genre, and I think I achieved something in my humble collection.

Of course, there's also movies that aren't pure blood noir, they borrow elements from classic noir movies, since police stories to comedies and such, but I also included on the list, I guess they deserve to be here. So here they are.
