The movies that I recall has the most to do with numbers:
Drowning by Numbers
Pi
The Number 23

But I couldn't recommend any of them

I'll recommend Drowning By Numbers, great example and great movie.

And I went with movies that dealt with numbers.  Your examples, DH, is where numbers take a role in the movie, but aren't necessarily central to them?

Yeah, it's something like « Iconic numbers in movies », but if they're important to the plot it's a plus I suppose.

Actually, this might be a fun game.  Put a number significant to a film, and then we try to guess the film.

These are pretty easy.

Probably way off, but for some reason 655321 makes me think of Primer

Edit: got curious and Googled it. I was way off... and annoyed I didn't recognize it

These go to 11.

Yes!

Yes! I thought of doing either one by itself but they only feel significant together.

Do you think not hearing it as "six, double-five..." threw you off?

Movies about numbers, or rather the people who use them:

Good Will Hunting
A Beautiful Mind
Moneyball
Intacto (it is about luck/probability)
Time Machine

Numbers in title and somewhat important in movie:

13
The Third Man
