Just about anything by Chabrol, Lelouch, Truffaut, Kieslowski, and Almodovar.
For sheer action & adrenalin the original French 'La Femme Nikita' with Anne Parillaud, not the US remake with Bridget Fonda, or the German 'Run Lola Run'.
IMOP the French b/w gangster movie "Rififi' is one of the best of the genre. I still miss Jean Gabin.
Werner Herzog's movies, esp. 'Fitzcarraldo,' "Das Boot,' and some of Wim Wenders films, but not the bs U.S. remake of his 'City of Angels.'
I Love Fassbinder's films, and who could ever forget Fritz Lang's classic 'M.'
I really liked Jim Jarmusch's 'Night on Earth.'
For myself, as a fan of spy movies, I have to include 'The Spy who came in from the cold', and the original 'Day of the Jackal.'
There are many on the original list, and many that are not.
For a visual feast try 'Indochine' with Catherine Deneuve. The first film I saw her in was 'Belle de jour.'
