Film Noir usually features the AntiHero, AntiVillain, VillainProtagonist, the ambiguity often rests on questions of trust, leading to an atmosphere of paranoia where PoorCommunicationKills regularly. The conclusion may or many not tie up all the loose ends, with the major mystery being the [[GreyAndGrayMorality morally ambiguous theme]] of the story. These factors contribute to the widely-held opinion that [[TrueArtIsAngsty Film Noir works are among the best artistic works of all time]] and contributed greatly to the maturity of cinema as an artform.

* ''Film/ThisGunForHire'' (1942). Based on a Creator/GrahamGreene novel, though with some material reworked for wartime-propaganda reasons. ProfessionalKiller Philip Raven completes an assignment and is then double-crossed by his latest employer. He sets out to get revenge. Meanwhile, [[TheChanteuse Nightclub Singer]] Ellen Graham is recruited by the federal authorities to spy on her current boss, who is suspected to be a fifth columnist. Raven and Graham are unknowingly WorkingTheSameCase and their paths cross. A major hit for the film noir genre, and the film which turned Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake into "reliable box office draws".
