    Not sure I've got much to add to the crackers already mentioned (and a fair few of those would appear in my 'all-time' favourite movie list... ranking them is going to be fun).

    Off the top of my head, I can think of three really good movies that haven't already been mentioned...

    The Irishman
    Badlands
    Monster

    Dog Day Afternoon is such a brilliant movie, a young Pacino at the very top of his game.

    "At close range" : with a very young Sean Penn. Worth a look !

    It was all downhill for the director James Foley after this movie, going on to direct the "50 Shades of * " series
