Film genre characteristic of the years between with 20's and late 40's. Dark, gritty crime fiction: usually a heist, murder, or other such crime. We're talking Tommy Guns, Private Detectives, and women you could still call broads. Classic examples include The Maltese Falcon and Chinatown: modern examples include The Usual Suspects. Heavily influenced the Cyberpunk sub-genre.
I watch too much Noir. Situations like this have me asking, "What would Humphrey Bogart do?"

An awesome anime about 2 female assassins.One of them being a girl whos alias is Kirika Yumura, who has amnesia and cant discover why she is so good at killing and feels no emotion when doing it.The other is Mirielle Boquet.She recieved an email from Kirika which said "Take a pilgrimage to the past with me." So she decides to find Kirika and help rediscover her past.But in doing so,Mirelle will kill Kirika once they do.The series is really great (especially in the later eps when Chloe appears.)They soon discover who the true Noir is.Noir being the codename for the ultimate assassin.The series is famous for its haunting visuals and GREAT soundtrack
Noir is my favorie anime.
