Noirvember 2020 in FIlms

Y’all this month was Noirvember 11!! I cannot even believe I’ve been doing this for that long. Every year more and more people (and libraries!) participate and it fills me with such joy (which is maybe the opposite of what noir should do???). I didn’t watch much this month beyond the one noir a day, but as always you can see everything I watched after the cut, plus a breakdown by decade and a few favorites.

  2. Beware, My Lovely
  3. Croupier
  4. The Sleeping City
  5. New York Confidential
  6. The Desperate Hours
  7. Slightly Scarlet
  8. The Killer That Stalked New York
  9. The Hot Spot
  10. City of Fear
