Send me a ranked list of your top 25 crime films (min. 10) by private message by Sunday, September 29th.
The eligibility is as simple as: if IMDb lists "crime" as a genre for a film, it is eligible. If there is something you think should be eligible that isn't marked as "crime" on IMDb, feel free to bring it up in this thread. This encapsulates everything from noir to neo-noir, gangster to gangsta, cops to robbers and..... well, you get the point.
Also feel free to use this thread for FYCs...
I am leaving the voting open for two months, so if you have any crime films you want to catch up on beforehand you have plenty of time... and no fucking excuse.
Strangely Vertigo isn't listed as crime on IMDB though I feel aside from romance or mystery, it would have to be just that - a crime thriller. Thoughts?
Kind of goes for just about all Hitchcock thrillers as well.
I'd definitely count it... much more than a detective movie, but still a detective movie.
Btw, probably gonna extend the deadline for this by a month since I'll be too busy to devote much attention to it for the next two weeks.
Yeah, I feel any story dealing with a detective, let alone a crime of some kind, is a crime film. That's why I found it so odd that a lot of my favorites were missing when I searched by genre on IMDB. Maybe I should try Letterboxd instead, but I suppose either way I'll make my own judgment. Just hope some films don't miss out!
No worries on the deadline. I only have time about once or twice a week anymore to visit here, so wanted to get it all sorted out now

I will definitely be voting, I'll work on a list soon.
In the meantime, I'd like to FYC
Les diaboliques (1955) The Raid 2 (2014) Miller's Crossing (1990) Wind River (2017) Hell or High Water (2016) American Psycho (2000) Death on the Nile (1978) Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018) Chicago (2002) Wild at Heart (1990) Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) The Young Offenders (2016) Summer of Sam (1999)

I won't actually vote for all of the above, but they have a crime tag on IMDB and they fit it to varying degrees.
