In the vein of 'Reservoir Dogs' or 'Mean Streets': movies that have spawned their own sub-cultures of dedicated fans (and provided a plethora of movie-poster choices for college freshmen decorating their dorms). If you haven't heard of each and every single one of these, you're just not a film-buff. Sorry.
One of the greatest French actors of his generation, Jean Reno is a staple of the crime/action genre on both sides of the Atlantic. Make sure to check out Nazi-conspiracy thriller 'The Crimson Rivers', if you haven't already! Less well-known than 'Ronin' or Leon: The Professional', but one of his best for our money.
The best neo-noir crime the nineteen nineties has to offer, before and after Quentin Tarantino revolutionized the genre; includes 'Fargo', 'Pulp Fiction', 'Miller's Crossing' - you know, the usual suspects ;).
