Review Hub - Film Noir

Film Noir is one of our favorite genres here at Trophy Unlocked and in honor of that we present this review hub, It is always the right time to start your own Summer of Darkness:

While some consider this genre to be as American as the Western, there were film noirs made in other countries, but none, I would say that match the best that Hollywood produced during the 1940s and 50s. Visually influenced by German expressionism, some of the greatest noirs were made by European emigres: Fritz Lang, Billy Wilder and Michael Curtiz.

If you like crime, private detectives, femme fatales and people who feel trapped in the shadows, then you'll probably love film noirs as much as I do.
