Sunset Boulevard Report Abuse
Try to say its not Noir, but it is. The storyline is vengeful and murderous and deliciously mad. It is perfect.

The Maltese Falcon Report Abuse
Every single character in this film is perfection. The writing is absolutely brilliant and the casting really could not be better. Everyone loves a good detective movie.

Act of Violence Report Abuse
This is almost a Jeckyll and Hyde premise. It pits the good guy against the bad guy and brings out the nightmarish terror within our own psyche.
