Live Poll: B&W Films of the 80s

From the 70s onward, with the vast majority of films being shot in color, it has become an artistic and/or stylistic choice to present a film in black and white. More often today it is used to pay homage to films of a bygone era and invoke a sense of nostalgia, but it can also be used to help create a stark, emotionless, unforgiving world onscreen. Which of these 80s films made most effective use of its black and white presentation?

This one is an even better list of films, I think. So good that I can't decide between six or seven, including Confidentially Yours, The Elephant Man, and Raging Bull. Bravo. 

I hope Rocky-o sees this; I bet he'd like this list. At least a few other GS board regulars, too.
