Hardboiled Wonderland: Underrated/Underseen Crime Flick Picks of the New Millennium

All crime flicks listed here: small films, foreign language imports, high-profile flops or victims of unjust critical dismissal. Some were even moderately successful, but deserve to be in more conversations, others are new, but under-exposed. Didn't love every one of these, but they all have a reason to be here.

I plan to continue adding and maybe, head hanging low, subtracting.
