I almost forgot...

 

THE HITCHER - John Seale

 

 The movie really has staying power. The tasteful use of chiarosuro in a desert environment. The anamorphic lenses worked very well, adding weight and atmosphere to an already tense situation. Watching that film at a very young age, I could feel all those elements working together to craft a special kind of terror. Classic.
