Iuess I should throw in some honorable mentions:

* BULLITT
* SHAFT
* TAXI DRIVER



Lotsa films involve crime-ie:murder is a crime. But when I think of "crime" films,I think of gangsters or heists or professional killers. While what Travis does in TAXI DRIVER is a crime- and Sport as a pimp too-I think of it more as a psychological study.Along the same lines as PSYCHO.
But that's just my opinion.

True . . . but the whole atmosphere of TAXI DRIVER is prostitution, pimps, drugs, and general street sleaze and Bickle's obsession with cleaning it up.  But your point is well taken and maybe that's why I only gave it an honorable mention.  Overall, it's a better movie than some of the others I mentioned, but maybe not a better crime movie.

The Maltese Falcon


One of my favorite movies.  For whatever reason I don't consider it a "crime" film, though I can see how you would put it in that category.   I was thinking mostly of gangster/heist type movies; if I included film noir and murder mysteries I might come up with a whole new list.

5- Reservoir Dogs (I honestly didn't expect to see this one show up on the list this much, I thought I'd get laughed into next week for this one... not that Black Caesar won't likely garner a few chuckes too, especially with how high it is on my list)
4- Goodfellas
3- Bonnie & Clyde
2- Black Caesar (my favorite blaxploitation movie, and my second favorite crime flick in general... Fred Williamson's best picture if ya ask me)
