I've never seen the Scorsese remake, only the original.

I can't tell if I am to infer that "Fellini, Bergman, Hitchcock, Citizen Kane, Gone With the Wind and other war horses" are also being lumped in with Tarkovsky films as "grim and humorless".

I'd say that doesn't sound mutually exclusive with being a noir, seeing as how noir overlapped with a number of different genres. One of the characteristics of noir is often the use of light and...

Re: The MoFo Top Neo-noir Countdown - Preliminary Thread

I will say, for both ballots, there was an issue of getting a list of movies to work off of. With the cause of neo-noir, the lists I did get were often jumbled with so many movies I wouldn't consider...
