I won't be observing Noirvember this year, in the first year I've truly considered it. Not sure I have the time or the bandwidth to watch 30 movies, one per day, from the same genre/type. If I did, though, the list would look something like this, with five 6-packs of films covering topics like classics, pairs, need (I need to see these, and I haven't yet), foreign, and extras.

Classic
Crossfire (1947)
Railroaded! (1947)
The Big Sleep (1946)
D.O.A. (1949)
M (1931)
The Scarlet Claw (1944)

Pairs
The Maltese Falcon (1931)
The Maltese Falcon (1941)
Pickup on South Street (1953)
The Naked Kiss (1964)
Blood Simple (1984)
The Man Who Wasn't There (2001)

My personal need-to-see list
Criss Cross (1949)
Double Indemnity (1944)
Laura (1944)
Lady in the Lake (1946)
Following (1998)
Dark City (1998)

Foreign-language films
High and Low (1963)
Shoot the Piano Player (1960)
Umberto D. (1952)
Coup de Torchon (1981)
Alphaville (1965)
Todo Modo (1976)

Extras
L.A. Confidential (1997)
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)
Body Heat (1981)
Brick (2005)
Palmetto (1998)
It's a Wonderful Life (1946)

And
In case that last choice, which is valid, is too controversial ... here's a substitute pick:
No Country for Old Men (2007)

Happy Noirvember!
