JG Ballard wrote two books in particular which have a very bleak experimental Neo Noir feel. 'Crash' was filmed by David Cronenberg which seems appropriate and a screen version of 'Concrete Island' is about to be made featuring Christian Bale.

Often described as the last movie made in the period of Classic Noir. Some might argue that 'Odds against Tommorow' made in 1959 should get that accolade but no-one can deny it's superb 'baroque' look and some legendary performances such as the Director Welles as corrupt sheriff Hank Quinlan and other cameo roles including Marlene Dietrich as local gypsy fortune teller.
