Diabolique (Les Diaboliques)
6 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Don't be fooled.
The subtitles and slow pace could mislead you - but the powerful ending is diabolical.
Well worth the long set up.

The Big Sleep
The Big Sleep (1946)
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Among the best studio produced, big-screen Film Noir flicks to pass an entendre.

Charley Varrick
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

While the premise of this movie would make a good comedy caper, this one is played straight - with few survivors. How to commit the perfect heist - by accident. Well worth seeing at least once.

Madigan (1968)
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Based on a book centering on a week in a police commissioner's compartmentalized life, this film focuses more on the results oriented detective whom the commissioner wishes was in some other city's payroll. All this in spite of Fonda being signed as the leading role, which after shooting & editing became Widmark. Directors prerogative.

Because of the grittiness & violence, this could almost be considered a white-man's Shaft.

Tarzan and His Mate
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

While much of the plot has some holes, this is possibly the best of the Tarzan series. While the FX attempts have mixed results (good animal animatronics, laughable elephants ears, identical jungle calls, predators that only attack), they were mostly cutting edge at the time.

A pleasure to see a young Neil Hamilton again, as well as a naked Jane (doubled in the underwater swim). Actually both Tarzan & Jane were doubled in the jungletop trapeze scenes as well. In all we get to see both the jungle King and his happy Queen at ease in their roles, which is how they'll be remembered - always.
