crumbsroomIf you're looking for a kind of low budget weirdo Noir a la Detour, while not in Detours league, Strange Impersonation is a long neglected curio worth seeking out.
Master King Sexington What are your top favorites, Matt? I watched Detour on your recommendation long ago so more in that vein would be appreciated.

post tenebras luxIf you guys want to see one of the greatest noirs of all time then check out Panic aka Panique (1946) w/ Vivianne Romance and Michel Simon. It completely covers the whole mob/lynch mentality spin and does it in such a disturbing and merciless way. Michel Simon plays the 'Jew' in the movie. I won't give away plot but it involves a robbery and a murder and Mr. Simon's character being framed. The climax is unforgettable and I believe you can grab it off youtube. It's a French language film and one of best ever noirs. All the noir trappings are in tact.Check it out if you already haven't MKS and Matt the Hatt.
PenarinOne I never hear much about is The Streets With No Name. About an FBI agent who goes undercover in a gang. Typical enough plot, sure, but interesting to see it done back in 1948. Plenty of location photography- dark city streets, dive bars, dance halls, boxing clubs. LOVE the look of this movie!
