Default Movie Recommendations With Sociopaths

Any recommendations for movies with sociopaths (or sociopath traits)? I really enjoy watching the following characters, for example:

Daniel Plainview: There Will be Blood
Anton Chigurh: No Country for Old Men (Didn't really like the movie though)
Sebastian Valmont: Cruel Intentions
Jacob Palmer: Crazy, Stupid, Love

I'm really looking towards movies with characters like Daniel Plainview and Anton Chigurh, whereas they are straight talkers and to the point, whose lives are governed by intellect and not emotions, and do not have overly exaggerated personalities.

(Doesn't this strike ANYONE as being a little too much information?)

Dude, don't be an idiot and try to dismantle my thread because of your fascination focused on movie characters I like to watch. Either please provide some sensible recommendation(s) or go run along and play somewhere else.

And thanks fellow members' for the input. However, any suggestions focused on characters who are driven more by intelligence and less emotional behavior (such as anger, rage, and violence) than the previous recommendations is encouraged.

I think I'd have to say Tim Roth as Cunningham in Rob Roy. Talk about sociopath...

I don't know the difference between a sociopath and a psychopath, but the following films have some loony characters in them!

The Third Man (Harry Lime)
Great Expectations (Miss Havisham)
Kind Hearts and Coronets (Louis Mazzini)
Trainspotting (Begbie)
The Ladykillers (Professor Marcus)
Brighton Rock (Pinkie Brown)
Hamlet (King Claudius)
Peeping Tom (Mark Lewis)
Blu-ray wish list: Blow-Up, Death in Venice, Far from the Madding Crowd, Macbeth (1971), Maurice and Ryan’s Daughter.
