As there are no new entrys about most-intense-scene-polls, I give the next igniting idea

This is the beginning of the 10th part of the most intense scenes polls. This time it's about the Film Noir and the Film Neo Noir genre.

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls028387435/

Rules:
It has to be a film Noir or Neo Noir. No movie picked twice in this
special poll series. To be sure avoiding to pick a scene of a movie that
already had a scene used in this series, there is a list of already used titles to compare. Search for the original title of your suggestion in the list:

Nikolay :D

Thank you for your great enthusiasm and the big row of suggestions you have for me. There are some real interesting picks on your list. But have you checked, if there is one of these used in another poll of this series? We still need four successful polls including this one to start the Olympics. ;) It woud be nice to have images of the scenes you mentioned. In some case i might remember proper to do that, but not in all suggestions. I try to clear it. I think 'The Silence of the Lambs' was mentioned in Poll 1 or two, I guess. For comparing the polls earlier lists:

In can be:

Reservoir Dogs
Sonatine
Lost Highway
Fight Club
A' bout de souffle
Le Samurai
Blade Runner
Miller's Crossing
Nikita
Barton Fink
Spellbound (1945)
Sunset Boulevard (1950)
Strangers on a Train
Touch of Evil
and
Vertigo

I'm not sure of some of them like e.g. Blade Runner. For me it was the most long-winded boring scifi-story ever. But give me a scene and I put it on the list.

I will put some of them on the list for sure:

Fight Club
Sunset Boulevard (1950)
Strangers on a Train
Vertigo
Lost Highway
Miller's Crossing
Reservoir Dogs
Nikita
and
Touch of Evil

For the others I need images and descriptions (short: 1, max. 2 Sentences)

Again: Thank you Nikolay. That was very useful. :D

I know that Bunuel movie with the eye cutting scene was scadalous at the time it was released. Bunuel himself also revealed that there is no deeper sense in it, he just wanted to provoke. Today it's one of the best known movie worldwide. He and his friend Salvador Dalí seem to also have had an common obsession on ants. Or it was pure coincidence that Dali's best known Picture is the one with the melting watches and the ants. Allegories on mortality?

Breumaster, that's okay. Especially since Quentin Tarantino specifically said that he never planned to make a neo-noir with this movie (it falls there, however). 

I don't remember suggesting that movie, however, that is the weird part... :)

Again sorry, Nikolay.
I've put the option back on the list. I'm not really coherent today ... and maybe for a few days, I should leave the keyboard. We trusted the wrong pizza baker, now we are excessively sick. I guess, I will quit for some days. It's allright. your suggestion of 'Reservoir Dogs' is on the list, but I've put it there - after you suggested. I go to bed now.
