One of my favorite episodes of Monk is "Mr Monk Is Someone Else" in which he disguises himself as a hit man he happens to resemble:

The Informer (1935). Great film in which Gypo Nolan visits a soup kitchen. Hunger and desperation are important themes in the narrative.

Lured is a great film. Lucille Ball gets to show off her dramatic talents, which I think exceed her comedic ones!

Videodrome (1983) - A wealthy recluse runs shelters designed to let the homeless watch television. The sinister purpose behind this is revealed, or at least implied, by film's end.

Can we include all movie versions of Oliver Twist? I know poor Oliver is really stuck in a poorhouse, but that's shelter by another name, right?

Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977). I think I saw this on television. Wikipedia says that it's never been released on DVD or Blu-ray. It's very . . . unusual, let's say.

I have never seen it. Not sure if TCM's ever aired it.
