To kick things off on their list of 1000 Essential noirs, TSPDT offered up the first 100 of the 1,000 films. These 100 films have been identified, according to their research, as the most mentioned/cited noir films of all-time. Call them the 100 most essential or quintessential, or whatever you like. They are, simply put, the 100 films that most often show up on film noir lists, in film noir festivals, and/or in film noir publications.

We at Icheckmovies have made these most essential noirs a separate list which you can find here. The rest of the list can be found here TSPDT 1000 Noir Films
