Best Neo-Noir Films

I have always been a fan of noir/hardboiled movies and fiction. There are many aspects of this genre that draws me to it: an emphasis on shadows, low-key lighting, and flawed characters. Film Noir in its golden age ran from the 1940s-1950s to which films made after this period were labeled as Neo-Noir. I have seen many films in this genre and have come up with a list of the absolute best Neo-Noir films.
