Have had Billy Liar on my shelf a bunch of times but couldn't get to it for one reason or another. :(  Must get to that soon.

 Billy Liar
 Midnight Cowboy
 Sunday Bloody Sunday
 The Day of the Locust
 Marathon Man
 The Falcon and the Snowman

Didn't have to change the chronological order. Hmmm. The Day of the Locust has my favourite moment, with Donald Sutherland telling someone his name. It was the early 90s when I saw it, so it was perfect timing.
