Contemporary Film Noir -- My Top Fifteen
My first feature,The Last Lullaby, just released on DVD on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and in a bunch of other places. It's a hybrid of genres, probably, but it's also probably a film noir. So to mark this big occasion for the film, I thought I would throw out a list of my personal favorites from the contemporary noir period (I started it, as many people do, after 1958.)
