What are some good law movies?

Outside of The Shawshank Redemption and A Few Good Men, what are some good intellectual movies dealing with jurisprudence?

And, please, no romance nonsense.

    The Rainmaker. Matt Damon was good in this one. And from the '50s, Witness for the Prosecution with Charles Laughton, Tyrone Power and Marlene Dietrich was first rate.

    The Verdict with Paul Newman is a good one. Some romance but it is important to the plot.

    Books authored by John Grisham that have been turned into movies.

    I really like Double Jeopardy. Not sure if its a law one, but its a good one.

    The Bone Collector is good too.
