Best films set on a single day

Add a list or tag with showdown:24hours

One day. One night. The clock is ticking and we want your best “finite timeframe” films. Any genre, any era, one rule: all of the action depicted in the film takes place in less than 24 hours. (Yes, okay: we’ll allow flashback devices, as long as they are peripheral and the main action falls within the timeframe.)
