If you haven't seen the popular film noirs/Neo noirs check them out (Taxi Driver, Chinatown, Sunset Blvd, Double Indemnity, Notorious, Strangers on A Train, Pulp Fiction, Touch of Evil, The Third Man, M, Laura, Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, Reservoir Dogs, LA Confidential etc.)
[code]When a man in mid-life crisis befriends a young woman, her venal fiancé persuades her to con him out of some of the fortune she thinks he has. [/code]
[code]When a conservative middle-aged professor engages in a minor dalliance with a femme fatale, he is plunged into a nightmarish quicksand of blackmail and murk.[/code]
Those two have the same director (Lang) and star the same people, even similar stories.

[code]Since he was a child, Bart Tare has always loved guns.[/code]
[code]A married woman and a drifter fall in love, then plot to murk her husband[/code]
[code]Private eye Philip Marlowe hired by Moose Malloy, a petty crook just out of prison after a seven year stretch, to look for his former girlfriend, Velma, who has not been seen for the last six years.[/code]
Very stylish and moody:
[code]Hit men k#ll an unresisting victim, and investigator Reardon uncovers his past involvement with beautiful, deadly Kitty Collins.[/code]
[code]A doomed female hitchhiker pulls Mike Hammer into a deadly whirlpool of intrigue, revolving around a mysterious "great whatsit."[/code]
Hitchcock's only surreal movie:
[code]A female psychiatrist protects the identity of an amnesia patient accused of murk while attempting to recover his memory.[/code]
[code]True story of an innocent man mistaken for a criminal.[/code]
[code]A major heist goes off as planned, until bad luck and double crosses cause everything to unravel.[/code]
Must see if you like 'gutter' talk tough guy dialogue:
[code]Tough cop Dave Bannion takes on a politically powerful crime syndicate.[/code]
[code]A pickpocket unwittingly lifts a message destined for enemy agents and becomes a target for a Communist spy ring.[/code]
[code]Bogart plays a man convicted of murking his wife who escapes from prison in order to prove his innocence[/code]
I am about to list more.

His movies are like french new wave and film noir put together. He makes gangsters look cool and cops look like fools.

[code]Burglar Maurice Faugel has just finished his sentence. He murks Gilbert Vanovre, a receiver, and steals the loot of a break-in[/code]
[code]Gustave Manda, better known as Gu, a dangerous gangster, escapes from jail. He goes to Paris to join Manouche and other friends[/code]
[code]Hitman Jef Costello is a perfectionist who always carefully plans his murks and who never gets caught[/code]
[code]Corey is a cool, aristocratic thief, released from prison on the same day that Vogel, a murker, escapes from the custody of the patient[/code]
[code]France, 1942, during the occupation. Philippe Gerbier, a civil engineer, is one of the French Resistance's chiefs[/code]
