Juri--How about Cornfield's The Night of The Following Day? It's supposed to be Brando's movie but Richard Boone almost takes it from him in every scene--an astonishingingly creepy thug. Parts of the picture are a mess because of its misguided pretentiousness but it has moments of true suspense and human power, especially the junkie scenes with Rita Moreno. Cornfield died recently. Somebody who'd worked with him (and tried to like him) said that he always told you what he thought and told you in the most demeaning way possible, thus limiting the number of optons he had in both features and TV. He had something like an eighth grade education and made up for it by smiting people he saw as his superiors, which must have been just about everything. Still and all he did some very interesting and sometimes brave work.
