Man how can you do all this reading/watching with a new baby. You are superman. Read the Woodrell book next. It's sublime and so is his story in Murdaland. My favorite movie from your list was The Proposition. My husband I disagree on The Wedding Crashers. He says its mostly about guys getting laid. I say it's mostly about guys who love weddings.
