I Need some psychological thriller movie recommendations.

I need some recommendations for some psychological thriller movies, stuff like:

Memento
Don't Say A Word
The Game
A Perfect Murder
Dressed To Kill

that kind of stuff....

Ya a bunch of these are Michael Douglas thrillers, but thats all I can think of I need some titles older or new that fit some of these profiles.

Thanks in advance. Post as many titles as you can, I know there are A LOT I am missing.

You're asking this about a movie in which the main character
Spoiler:
becomes overwhelmed by paranoia and is ultimately driven to attempt suicide?

They've been mentioned, but if you haven't seen them Arlington Road, Last Seduction, and No Way Out are excellent. You might also try The Prestige, The Illusionist, and Skeleton Key.

I would go with Kubrick movies. I would say all of his films have elements of Psychological thriller. The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut are the most prevalent.
