I have not read those titles, but I have read "Concrete Island" and
"Crash," both of which I recommend. If not noir, they certainly drink from the cup of nihilism. In one of the titles, the protagonist wakes up after a car crash and is stuck in a highway median from which he can't escape. See this link to Wikipedia, which calls it a "twisted adaptation of Robinson Crusoe."
