Sheila writes: Film noir is one of the richest topics in cinema, and audiences and critics alike have thrilled to its stylistic signatures and deeply ambiguous view of human nature. The site Open Culture just had a piece up on film noir, specifically on Roger Ebert's various words on the subject. Eddie Muller recently published a piece there as well on the 25 noir films that will stand the test of time. Back in 1995, Ebert published a piece that was, essentially, a guide to the film noir genre. Some of my favorite films are film noirs. What are your favorites?
