New York movies: The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974)

Transit cop Walter Matthau (wearing MTA cynicism like a badge of honor) has to stop a quartet of thieves holding a subway car of distinctly Noo Yawk passengers for ransom. This crackerjack action thriller pulses with ’70s-era sleaziness, from dank, dark train tunnels to David Shire’s pounding, jazzy musical score.—Keith Uhlich
