20 Best Film Noirs list from the Independent

Writer Graeme Ross prepared this list. I’ve seen 19 of the 20. (I haven’t seen Detour.) Most are available on disc or shown on TCM. I agree with many of his picks but I would put them in a different order. Out of the Past is #1 for me followed by Criss Cross. The Big Sleep is a great film. I saw it recently and was impressed by how well written the script is.

I’m glad he included The Big Heat and The Big Combo. I would rank them both higher than he does.
