    I slightly edited the original list i posted when I remembered "The Man Who Would Be King". A Rudyard Kipling story made into a film starring Michael Caine and Sean Connery. It is about 2 british soldiers who decide to attempt to independently become kings of the isolated tribal region of Kāfiristān using their military prowess. I looked it up and it was actually made in 1975 but I will leave it up because it's a good movie.

    Gimme Shelter. Hard Day's Night. Don't Look Back. Joe.

    Worst--Getting Straight, or any other pretending to understand what was Really Going On, unlike Easy Rider, which understood completely.

    Just off the top of my head, don't want to think too hard!
