The TSPDT 250 Quintessential Noir Films list contains 241 films that all contain three key ingredients.
1) They were all produced in the United States;
2) They were all shot in black-and-white;
3) They were all produced between 1940 to 1959.
The nine films that have been included that exclude at least one of these key ingredients are two non-American-produced noir (The Third Man and Mr. Arkadin), four color noir films (Leave Her to Heaven, Niagara, Party Girl and Slightly Scarlet), and three films from the early 1960s (Cape Fear, Underworld, U.S.A. and The Naked Kiss).
Other titles included in the list are noir precursors, modern noir, non-American noir, and additional films between 1940-1964 that have noir elements.
Section changes will be listed in this complete list (so the reader will know where in the list modern noir films begin/end, etc.).
Films 1 - 250 (The Accused through The Wrong Man) are TSPDT's 250 Quintessential Noir Films.
Films 251 - 358 (The 13th Letter through A Woman's Secret) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category A: films often cited as film noir. These films weren't far away from being included on the 250 Quintessential listing, and most of them contain many - if not all - of the classic noir ingredients.
Films 359 - 513 (5 Against the House through Women's Prison) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category B: films quite often cited as film noir, but not to the same degree as those listed in Category A. It must be considered that in most cases these films contain strong film noir elements.
Films 514 - 750 (The Thirteenth Hour through A Woman's Vengeance) are "More American Noir Films and/or Films with Noir Elements from 1940 to 1964" Category C: films not often cited as film noir. These films include certain film noir characteristics, even though - in many cases - they belong in other clear-cut genres, e.g. Westerns. However, it should also be acknowledged that many of these films are without doubt 'fully-blown' noirs (of the very neglected variety).
Films 751 - 825 (Another Man's Poison through Wicked as They Come) are British-produced noir (1940-1964).
Films 826 - 837 (Bob le flambeur through The Wages of Fear) are French-produced noir (1940-1964).
Films 838 - 843 (Ossessione through Stolen Identity) are classified as "other" non-American noir produced between 1940-1964: 1 Italian, 3 Japanese, 1 Mexican, and 1 Austrian, respectively.
Films 844 - 871 (The Beast of the City through You Only Live Once) are "Noir-Precursors": films that shaped the look of noir before the style came into its own during the 1940s. All are American-produced except The Green Cockatoo (UK), La Bête Humaine, Pépé le Moko, and Quai des brumes (France), and M (Germany).
Films 872 - 962 (Angel's Flight through The Salton Sea) are "Neo-Noir / Modern Noir" films made after the 'golden age' of film noir up to 2002. They are grouped them by decade, and all are American-produced, except for:
French-produced: Le Samouraï, Le deuxième souffle, Le cercle rouge, Série noire, La femme Nikita, Léon, and Mulholland Dr.
German-produced: Der amerikanische Freund
UK-produced: The Big Sleep (1978), Get Carter (1971), and Mona Lisa
Steven Jay Schneider's 101 War Movies You Must See Before You Die
The horror and the heroism of war has long been a staple of cinema and the background for many different story genres, from anti-war comedies such as M*A*S*H to the heroic feats of combat troops and fighter pilots played by the likes of John Wayne and other screen favorites. Here are the 101 most memorable war films ever produced.
Films always have the ability to anger us, divide us, shock us, disgust us, and more. Usually, films that inspire controversy, outright boycotting, picketing, banning, censorship, or protest have graphic sex, violence, homosexuality, religious, political or race-related themes and content. They usually push the envelope regarding what can be filmed and displayed on the screen, and are considered taboo, "immoral" or "obscene" due to language, drug use, violence and sensuality/nudity or other incendiary elements. Inevitably, controversy helps to publicize these films and fuel the box-office receipts.
A very special series of films screened on a repertory basis, the Essential Cinema Repertory collection consists of programs of shorts and hundreds of features assembled in 1970-75 by Anthology’s Film Selection Committee – James Broughton, Ken Kelman, Peter Kubelka, P. Adams Sitney, and Jonas Mekas. It was an ambitious attempt to define the art of cinema. The project was never completed but even in its unfinished state the series provides an uncompromising critical overview of cinema’s history. The titles are still being screened under the brand of "Essential Cinema". Now and then additional titles are added to the collection.
Movies really started making an impact in the 1910s, with audiences demanding more complicated plots and more information on the stars. This led to the rise of the great studios and the construction of many movie theaters. It was also a decade of innovation, with both the technology and the medium itself. D.W. Griffith's epic Birth of a Nation in particular helped film-making make a giant leap forward. The most popular genres were westerns, melodramas and slapstick comedies.
The European Film Awards are presented annually by the European Film Academy to recognize excellence in European cinematic achievements. The awards are given in over ten categories of which the most important is the Film of the year. They are restricted to European cinema and European producers, directors, and actors.

The term "miniseries" is used to refer to a single finite story told in separately broadcast episodes. Before the term was coined, such a form was always called a "serial", in the same way that a novel appearing in episodes in successive editions of magazines or newspapers is called a serial.
