I've probably forgotten a few but here are some of mine...

Some Mother's Son

In The Name of the Father

The Wind That Shakes the Barley

Bloody Sunday

The Commitments

The Crying Game

The Magdalene Sisters

Darby O'Gill and the Little People

The Departed

Miller's Crossing

Gangs of New York

P.S. I Love You

Million Dollar Baby

The Boondock Saints

Anyone else?

I recommend In America. I thought it was great. Though, I'm glad someone else mentioned The General. Granted, I saw that film by mistake.
