We're planning on revisiting several Film Noirs from the classic era over the course of this month. Here's a list films we're planning to watch. We were inspired by a re-watch of Lang's The Big Heat but now the plan is to go back to earlier noirs and move forward in time. Every movie on this list isn't perfect but a few are among the best films ever made.
