I haven't seen lotsa Shia, but I heard he was good in American Honey.
I stayed away from young actors on my list. I thought about Kirsten Stewart, Brie Larsson, and Emma Stone.
My favorite of Philip Seymour Hoffman's roles was in The Master. 5 seconds into his screentime I knew that this was something I'd never seen from him before.
Joaquin Pheonix deserves to be on the list too.


Will have to check this out.

Philip Seymour Hoffman!!

 

 

He was amazing. Loved him in Charlie Wilson's War with Hanks.
 

 

And the Talented Mr. Ripley, and Boogie Nights, and pretty much everything else he was in (including one of the Mission Impossibles).

 

One of my favorites- Steve Buscemi

He lives in my neighborhood.  I've seen him around a number of times, including in a restaurant a couple of months ago.

I don't think Pacino or De Niro are in the running, to be honest. They're tremendous in certain roles, but I think their range is lacking. Or maybe I'm just putting too much weight on their work after they got older and stopped caring.

Thats cool. I've always enjoyed Buscemi.

It's not a fun movie, but it's great. Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the finest American artists of our time.

I forgot Viola Davis!

Daniel Day Lewis

Charlize Theron (Monster. She can do serious, she can be thriller, she can be comedy. Range, talent.)

Ralph Fiennes. (his Amon Goeth in Schindler's List is horrifyingly incredible).

Tom Hanks

Robert De Niro 

Kevin Spacey

Christian Bale

Kate Winslet

 

Different eras, but, Charlie Chaplin. Vivien Leigh.

Just watched Whiplash. Not really sure how I feel. First thought is Not a lot of substance.

On second thought, that's harsh. It's focused, and that's a good thing.

Enjoyed Wonder Woman. Best DC effort in a long time. Better than BvS and obviously better than that trash, suicide squad.

I expected to like it, but for me it was the musical version of Shame; excellent acting, but not a movie I enjoyed watching or would watch again. The ending was unsatisfying in both cases, too.

I expected to like it, too. It's so squarely in my wheelhouse. I'm a drummer, I love obsessed artist stories, I love jazz, but it just didn't connect with me.
