Film Noir, Mystery and Thriller

Film-Noir, Mystery and Thriller simply have the same meaning, so it is a good idea to huddle the genres into a tiny little bundle. The Hitchcock films are together later on since he deserves to have his own special category.

When I watched a film-noir, I usually hazard a guess halfway to look at the gallery of suspects. Some seem extremely obvious, while others less so. It is an ever-changing web to keep us glued to the evolving plot.
