"The 842 noir(ish) films listed below contain varying amounts of film noir elements. Most have solid noir traits, but, it must be said, there are some that have very questionably been cited as noirs. However, I'm not playing the noir juror here. I haven't strayed from the numbers and therefore have made no exclusions. As per the 1,000 Noir Films, the noir(ish) films listed below are based on the number of noir-related citations* they have received (based on TSPDT's research). All films in the 1,000 Noir Films received a minimum of eleven noir-related citations. The films below received between five and ten noir-related citations.

*Citations were culled from a multitude of sources (from books and the internet), including many (if not all) of the most well-known film noir-related publications. These include John Grant's A Comprehensive Encyclopedia of Film Noir, Film Noir: The Encyclopedia by Alain Silver, Elizabeth Ward, James Ursini & Robert Portforio, The Worldwide Film Noir Tradition by Spencer Selby, More Than Night: Film Noir in its Contexts by James Naremore, and many, many more."
