I think the ones in this film are some of - if not - the best I've ever experienced. I'm a huge fan of the gritty realism and extraordinary production design that all comes together in such an incredible way. Other films that make great use of them are Snake Eyes, Touch of Evil, Hunger, Atonement, Unbreakable, and many others.
In my humble opinion though, no other film has used them as effectively yet.
