What did I say about noir in Hollywood in the 2010s?

Remember what I said about new noir films in Hollywood? See my post on Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners here.

I stumbled on a post at Hardboiled Wonderland listing the best crime films of the last year. Seems there are more noir or at least noirish crime films out there than I first realized. I hated The Counselor, but Jedidiah Ayres writes interestingly on other films he mentions. (Of course not all the films are Hollywood, but nevertheless.)

I seem to be in the minority in my love of The Counelor as well as Only God Forgives and Elysium too. Maybe I've got a problem.

I liked Only God Forgives (I don't think I wrote about it here), haven't seen Elysium.
