Two south-of-the-border noirs off the top of my head:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Touch_of_Evilhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out_of_the_past
But there's a lot more.
Eh, may as well post these now since I'm in compulsive research mode:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where_Danger_Liveshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ride_the_Pink_Horse
Actually found those two off of a syllabus for a film history class specifically called, "Going South: American Noir in Mexico"
Here are some sentences from previous posts on the subject:
"A secondary tenet of Noir is south-of-the-border locations and plots. Some uneventful detective work slash plot introduction during the day, perhaps a trail, and then at night the clubs, a visit to the slums or beach in the dark and tie it all up at a villa. Throw some Hispanic stereotypes and femme fatale in there and you're set."
"Along with dark cityscapes, crime, femme fatales, private detectives, boxing matches, and horse races, there are adventures south of the border.
Of course the example I'm thinking of right off the bat is Touch of Evil directed by and starring Orson Welles as a fat corrupt has-been cop."This comment was edited on Sep 8, 2011, 21:41.
