I was considering which Hong Kong film to link in my post. HARD BOILED is too obvious; THE KILLER is legitimate but might get called out as neo-noir; A BETTER TOMORROW might be accepted, but I want controversy here. So, A BETTER TOMORROW 2? Oh, my. I've been throwing the Hong Kong (and, to a lesser degree, Korean) wrench into the film noir gear for years for the sole reason that it is the true heir to the noir crown and not the 90s pulp revival. Those are all great films, most of which wouldn't hold a place on any personal noir shortlist (say that not to deride your opinion, more to indicate where mine is coming from), so: not a single Edgar G. Ulmer flick? He's only the greatest director of all time. I'll save you from my posting of any Don Siegel videos. Edit: I'd be remiss if I didn't post one of my best friend's favorite noir of all time: Double Edit: Also, if you guys can get a copy of it, Elliot Lavine's book "I WAKE UP DREAMING" is a fantastic piece of work on B noirs. He's the long-time programmer of the Roxie, runs the San Francisco noir fest, and, since we're speaking about noir here, is a good friend of the friend I mention above, so do the guy a favor and buy his book.
