    * - almost certainly I've seen other films of his such as Yanks and Sunday Bloody Sunday, but it's been too long for me to remember anything for certain, except a vague feeling that I've seen them, and didn't like them much.

    I've seen:

    Pacific Heights (1990)
    The Falcon and the Snowman (1985)
    Marathon Man (1976)
    Midnight Cowboy (1969)

    I absolutely love "Marathon Man". I'm pretty sure I read the novel twice, too.

    Another director who started out very strongly but whose career spiralled downhill with the onset of the 1980s. A pity...
