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 begone 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 films made most effective use of its black and white presentation?

The only ones on the list that were any good to me were "Schindler's List(1993)", "Ed Wood(1994)" and "The Addiction(1995)".  Can anyone else do better than me?
