Taxi Driver (1976)
  Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle, a man struggling to come to terms with the seedy environment he lives in. Somehow, De Niro makes crazy NY taxi drivers almost sexy ;)

  The Marquise and the Vicomte play cruel parlor games of sex, deceit and revenge.
Thelma & Louise (1991)
  They start off as fairly normal women, and spiral into a crime spree, but they have lots of fun doing it!
Bad Lieutenant (1992)
  Disturbing, visceral character study of corrupt N.Y.C. cop's slide into insanity (this listing has been questioned and may indeed deserve to be on my "Redemption Stories" list... perhaps I need to see it again)
El Mariachi/Desperado (1992)
  El Mariachi heads down a dangerous road due to mistaken identity. His decline is entirely out of his control.
Falling Down (Deluxe Edition) (1993)
  The adventure of an already disturbed man who snaps and goes to war with the ordinary world. Big time downward spiral.
Amadeus (1984)
