Dark thrillers
No Country for Old Men, 28 Days Later, Se7en, Memento, Drive, Mullohand Dr., Donnie Darko, Collateral, Gone Baby Gone
These kind of films have a great dark feel to them, such a tone that prove the director is not afraid to take his film where he wants to take it. To invoke emotions in an emotionless world is a skill that anyone can admire.

Dark comedies
Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs, In Bruges, Fargo, Snatch, Thank you for Smoking, Django Unchained
Most other comedies rely on stupid characters or funny shenanigans. Not these films, these movies rely on very well-written and clever dialogue. Although some people may not like that, well those people aren't very smart.

The Place Beyond the Pines, Mud, Heat, Collateral, Taxi Driver, Training Day, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
When a film can combine the thrilling elements of crime movies, but also have a deep dramatic undertone, then nobody walks out disappointed. You get a well-written story with some cool plot direction and flow, as well as great acting and exciting action sequences.
