I love Blow Out, which has a truly noir ending. Dressed to Kill is a successful update on Psycho. The Untouchables is beautiful to look at, tells its story well and benefits from fine, if scenery chewing performances from Sean Connery and Robert DeNiro. I may have forgotten another one or two, but by and large, it's all downhill from there. and in many cases, it's a steep drop
