I was beginning to worry nobody would mention The Man Who Wasn't There until berk posted it..

 

 

Out of the older goodies, I recently saw Charade (63) and The Ipcress File (65) and recommend them.

Hot Spot, directed by Dennis Hopper, soundtrack by Miles Davis - swamp blues with a grunting guitarist - starring Don JOhnson ... hot sweaty "Southern" Noir.

Palmetto (1998), starring Woody Harrelson, based on a novel by a great pulp writer James Hadley Chase ( personal favorite, the writer...) Jum Thompson as a writer was between pulp and "real" literature but you might want to check movies based on his novels, like After Dark, My Sweet (1990) ....

is that the black and white movie by Coen brothers? that's certainly is a stylish Noir, I'd say a Noir by the book, but Big Lebowsky is not, its more like a "comedy of errors" .... the brothers have other noirish works too but I need to refresh my memory

... I saw charade (1963) recently, it's a movie that I felt was already old fashioned when it was made, nice in an innocent old Hollywood way but not noirish, it lacked the mood - fatality, destiny, pessimism etc

surprised this wasn't mentioned:

 

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082089/

 

probably the quintessential neo-noir.


...also The Long Goodbye of course.

Body Heat .... indeed

...also The Long Goodbye of course.

Polanski's Chinatown is also from the 70's and has a private dick as a protagonist ... but it's a big budget movie instead of genuine B, and has lot of outdoor sunny scenes - maybe not enough darkness, shadows and claustrophobia ... but rich people with twisted secrets fit the bill ...

... one typical visual element in old noirs was window blinds casting shadows, and one couldn't help noticing them in Knock Knock (2015), and that sure as hell wasn't an accident ... so let's say Knock Knock is at least bit noirish .... recommended

yes ... but the term came after the Noirs were mostly already made, the film makers didn't know they were making Noirs, some French critics invented the genre after the fact and classified bunch of diverse films together so there is a "demarcation" problem ... anyway I like them a lot and have watched shitloads of them, and while there is nothing wrong in, say, driving a car in a desert in a Film Noir it's still the shadows and darkness that I associate with them and expect to see ... but point taken
