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.

3.A Kind of Loving (1962) ****
4.Sunday Bloody Sunday (1971) ***1/2
5.Marathon Man (1976) ***1/2
6.The Day of the Locust (1975) ***1/2
7.Darling (1965) ***
8.Far from the Madding Crowd (1967) ***

10.The Falcon and the Snowman (1985) **1/2
11.The Believers (1987) **1/2

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