Hatari! (1962) - made when I was 3, this is a surprisingly accessible John Wayne film, a RomCom before the term was invented.
IMDB - A group of men trap wild animals in Africa and sell them to zoo

Marx Brothers at their best!
A silly pre-Mr. Bean, a great don't think too mutt movie.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm 
After a 14 year hiatus, Borat is back in a better crafted story where he's back in today's America satirizing some of the more dubious parts of its culture in the
You are confusing Iconic Status with Talent, something or somebody could be Iconic because they are so bad. Look at Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, an Icon in our time, he was Shit, in fact he was so bad that is what made him good.
So Jack the ripper and Fred West could be Icons then?
Basically yes, one of the definitions of “Iconic” is, “Widely known and recognised, especially for distinctive excellence” Note Especially does not mean specifically.
Also the word is subjectlve to ones own experiences, if from the UK you would know about LS Lowry and his iconic matchstick figures, if from say Turkey it would be “What the Fuck?”
We, as individuals, each have our own icons, there is no fixed metric to define such.
Mare Of Easttown [2021 TV Limited Series]
A detective in a small Pennsylvania town investigates a local murder while trying to keep her life from falling apart. Old school style crime series with lots going on to give it more depth. Slow going at times, of interest for its strong lead and some surprises.
Some Kind Of Heaven 
Filmmaker Lance Oppenheim cracks the manicured facade of The Villages -- a massive, self-contained retirement community located in Central Florida. Behind the gates of this utopia lie a small group of Villages residents and one interloper who are unable to find happiness within the community's pre-packaged paradise. Deadpan documentary with some curious characters has some appeal but average at best.
Time [2021 TV limited series]
A prison officer tries to protect those in his charge, one of whom is a teacher serving time for drunk driving. When one of the inmates identifies the officers weakness, he faces an impossible choice between his principles and family. A prison crime drama with some harrowing scenes of prison brutality, two great actors at the top of their game, this is as good as it gets for British TV dramas and highly recommended.
When two thieves break into a nobodies suburban home one night, he declines to defend himself or his family, to prevent serious violence. The aftermath ignites a long-simmering rage propelling him on a brutal path that will surface dark secrets and lethal skills. In a barrage of fists, gunfire and squealing tires, he must save his family from a dangerous adversary. This low budget actioner is a lot of fun, punching above its weight - just the tonic when adrenaline fueled mindless violence suits the mood.
Shiva Baby 
Dragged along to a Jewish funeral service with her parents, a college student runs into both her ex-girlfriend and her sugar daddy who arrives with his wife and baby she didn't know about. A somewhat claustrophobic black comedy brings to mind Woody Allen, is a bit of an acquired taste (not mine), simplistic story line albeit well produced.
In The Earth 
The world searches for a cure to a disastrous virus, a scientist and park scout venture deep in the forest for a routine equipment run, but things aren't what they seem. From the same director of the horror comedy Sightseers  and starring that bloke from the inventive Inside No9 TV series, this low budget British horror flick is completely engrossing from start to finish, has the makings of a cult classic.
