RE: RARA-AVIS: Mostly noir on TCM

If we're talking neo-noir, shouldn't we date it a little earlier? From the 70s, we have Chinatown, for example, and that Marlowe film that Altman directed. Anything from the 60s?

While I think there's a lot of substance underneath the style of Pulp Fiction (less so in many of his others, not that I don't still really enjoy them), I agree with your periodization of neo-noir. However, how about some titles? This isn't so I can argue with your conclusions, but to see if there are any I haven't seen and should.
