Neo-Noir is the best movie dish that I would like to taste as it includes crime, humor, dark wit, twisted plot and classy dialogues. It shows a perception from both ends like bad and good or right or wrong. Neo-Noir movies never judge what’s wrong or right? It just shows the both ends of the right and wrong.
For those who don’t understand the concept of Neo-Noir:
Neo means new and Noir means Black, well adding these two become New Black which means a dark crime movie with new theme and ideologies. It contains a different cinematography than usual films which make it unique in its own style.
