Top 6: Film Noir

For Episode 41's Top 6 segment, we tried to pick the best six films noir. We covered film noir back in Episode 20, and here is a loosely connected continuation of that discussion. As it turned out, though, neither one of us could choose how to prune down the possibilities -- there are just too many great ones -- and so Sam restricted himself to only choosing classic noir films and still wound up with seven, and Stephen gave up trying to rank the movies and just contented himself with picking six great films representative of the genre.

What are your favorites?

As always, we recommend listening to the episode before reading further.
