Can you think of some movies where the bad guy is sort of right, or at least has a good point?

Looking to come up with a list of movies where the bad guy, if not right in his execution, at least is right in his thinking, kind of. For instance, in Watchmen, Ozymandias. Colonel Jessup in A Few Good Men: "Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives." Gene Hackman in Crimson Tide, because he was following the correct military procedure. Whoever it was in Gattaca who decided, yeah, maybe you shouldn't fly a spaceship to Saturn if your heart is a garbage heart that might explode. Things like that. They're bad guys, but you can at least agree they maybe have a point.
