Answers

Shutter Island is superb! Well, if we had to put it in a genre it would be, as you have heard, Neo-Noir.

Film NOIR specifically refers to a group of films produced during 1940-1960.The story of a crime from the perspective of the criminals rather than that of the police. The setting is usually urban and dark.

NEO-NOIR borrows what it can from film noir: hard-boiled stories, protagonists, themes and darkly lit visuals – and leaves behind what it cannot appropriate from the popular culture of a different historical era
