8. #24 The Incident (1967, Larry Peerce): 7.5 - This movie is about two hoodlums (with a young Martin Sheen making his debut) harassing metro passengers. The anxiety of something violent happening and the impotency to prevent or intervene is painfully relatable. The movies realistically deals with homophobia and racial tensions (Best moment is when the police do finally enter the metro they immediately attack the only black male). So while the last half of the movie is great, the movie takes unnecessary long to introduce all the different passengers. Also the mayhem progresses too orderly with the hoodlums bothering every character/couple one-by-one, because the plot has to check them all off.
