Memorable Dirty Cop Movies

There have been some terrific dirty cop movies over the years, so I've put together a list of the most memorable. I've tried to only pick titles where a dirty cop's misdeeds are a big part of the storyline, rather than something that's a minor subplot. Some cover various genres, such as my number 1 choice Leon, which is more of an assassin centred film, but Gary Oldman's Stanfield is so rotten, and so off the chain, it had to make the grade. Happy reading, and if you feel there's any glaring omissions (I've yet to see the Infernal Affairs trilogy for example). feel free to make suggestions.
