List of Neo Noir Films and Movies   : Vote for your favorites.

Neo-noir is a modern or contemporary motion picture rendition of film noir. The term film noir (a term popularised by two French critics, namely, Raymond Borde and Etienne Chaumeton in 1955), when translated from French to English, reads dark movie, indicating a sense of something sinister and shadowy. The film-noir genre includes stylish Hollywood crime dramas, neo-noir being the same, but with updated themes, content, style, visual elements or media that were absent in the films of the film noir period from the 1940s and 1950s.

Neo-noir, as the term suggests, is contemporary noir. These films are quite aware of the fact that they are harking back to 'classic noir', as can be seen from the tilted camera angles, interplay of light and shadows, unbalanced framing; blurring of the lines between good and bad and right and wrong, and a motif of revenge, paranoia, and alienation, among other borrowed sensibilities.
