For the past five years, Noirvember has been an annual month-long celebration of film noir in the month of November. In that time I've watched a lot of film noir (there's so many!). What I've compiled here is 30 films that I think distill the essence of the noir era (roughly 1941 to 1958). I tried to pick images that really encapsulate the tone of the era. I also included one quote from each film that I love. For more noir titles, They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? has a great list, with over 1000 films! If you participate, don't forget to use #Noirvember on your posts on any social media channel. Happy (or maybe, unhappy) watching!
