Tagged where? IMDb has a Film-Noir genre but it only seems to use that for the old films. None of the Neo-Noirs I checked had that tag.
I just checked The Man Who Wasn't There (2001) and it does not say 'Noir' at the top of the page only 'Crime' 'Drama'...
But if you scroll down the page some it says 'neo noir'.

I don't know what other films you checked maybe they aren't but crime dramas? Of course no method is 100%.



Of course no method is 100%.
Which is the problem with trying to corral them into eligibility.

I checked at least To Live and Die in LA, Se7en and Angel Heart. None of those have a noir tag.

EDIT: Oh, you mean those tags. Aren't they just random stuff the users add. Many films have close to a hundred of them like Angel Heart has "father daughter sex" - maybe that's an idea for a countdown as well I was referring to the genres listed on IMDb.

You're correct, at IMDB there are no 'noir' tags for those three movies you mentioned.

But at Wikipedia all those movies are described as 'neo-noir'. I didn't look at Rotten Tomatoes or Movie.db

Any or all of those sites could be used as a definition to if a film is eligible as noir or not. Up to the host of course, I'm just speaking figuratively.



The trick is not minding
Also, tossing this out there, as I have mentioned before…..next year (2023) will be the 10th anniversary of the 90’s countdown, so it may be of some interest to look into redoing that much like the horror countdown had it’s 10th anniversary a few years back.
I’d say after the 2010-2019 countdown, of course.

I’d be interested to see how much has changed in 10 years time. And definitely after alternating with another genre, as we usually do

As much as Sexy complained about the nineties countdown it's one of the better put together lists we've made.

It could definitely be better. I actually feel the current aughts is slightly better.
