Rebecca [1940] [DVD]
Rebecca [1940] [DVD]
"Hitchcock's brilliant, brooding masterpiece from Daphne DuMaurier's timeless novel.  A woman who is never even seen in the film dominates the entire movie.  Also, look at Preminger's 'Laura.'"
Chinatown [DVD]
Chinatown [DVD]
"A nearly perfect American movie.  Faye Dunaway gives one of her two best performances, the other being in 'Bonnie & Clyde.'  This movie haunts you when it's over."
Body Heat [DVD] [1981]
Body Heat [DVD] [1981]
"Kathleen Turner sizzles, and William Hurt falls for her in the heat, in this Noir thriller.  The scorching temperature on screen just keeps rising.  Everyone I know likes this film."
Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte [DVD]
Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte [DVD]
"One of my absolute favourite movies of all time.  Bette Davis, Olivia De Havilland, Joseph Cotton and Agnes Moorehead are sensational.  Don't read anything about it first.  Just watch the movie."
Vertigo [DVD]
Vertigo [DVD]
"A classic Hitchcock film about obsession and fear of heights with the lovely Kim Novak and the skilled Jimmy Stewart.  Stewart would, also, appear in 'Rear Window.'"
Body Double [DVD]

Memento   (Special Edition)  [DVD]
Memento (Special Edition) [DVD]

Farewell My Lovely [DVD]

"Mitchum's solid reprise of Philip Marlowe.  This film is a remake of the 1944 film with Dick Powell.  Watch both."
This Gun For Hire [DVD]

"Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake.  After viewing this one, check them out in 'The Blue Dahlia,' their other Noir thriller."
The Player [DVD]
The Player [DVD]

"Rita Hayworth does her star turn in this Noir film.  Also, you might want to take a look at her husband's, Orson Welle's, Noir movie, 'Touch of Evil.'"
Les Diaboliques [1954] [DVD]
Les Diaboliques [1954] [DVD]
"A man pushes both his wife and his mistress too far in this French thriller starring Simone Signoret.  It was remade in a later American version with Sharon Stone and Isabelle Adjani."

Sunset Boulevard - Paramount Originals (includes Limited Edition reproduction film poster) [DVD]
"Not truly a detective movie at all; however, it explores the world of California and Hollywood that spawned Film Noir, and is it ever dark.  And a gun does go off."
Gumshoe [DVD]
Gumshoe [DVD]
"Along with 'Apartment Zero' and 'The Last of Sheila,' one of my favourite dark movies.  All three should be brought out on PAL DVD in the UK."
