** ''Film/{{Memento}}'' (2000): A man searches for his wife's killer in the aftermath of a violent home invasion that left him unable to form new memories. Has many of the stylistic elements that define classic Noir: an alienated, uncertain protagonist attempting to solve a nigh-impossible mystery, characters whose trustworthiness is constantly in flux, a sharply twisting plot that changes the audience's understanding of the story practically every scene, and a highly unreal, dreamlike tone, with half of the movie even arranged in backwards chronology to match the protagonist's inability to remember how or why he is in any given situation.
** ''Film/{{Insomnia}}'' (2002): The [[ForeignRemake American adaptation]] of a Norwegian film from 1997. At its core a fairly straightforward noir with Creator/AlPacino as an angst-ridden cop dealing with past mistakes.
** ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy'' plays up the noirish aspects of Batman.
** ''Film/ThePrestige'' and ''Film/{{Inception}}'' have elements of noir, but each is a GenreBuster of sorts.
