    Your Favourite Acting Performances

    Benicio Del Toro - 21 Grams....I was in awe of this performance. Truly stunning.


    Robert De Niro - Taxi Driver....Come on, we've all stood in front of that mirror before a shave and asked, "You looking at me?"

    Daniel Day Lewis - Gangs of New York - I didn't rate the film, but it was worth watching, and re-watching, just for Mr DL

    Christopher Walken - True Romance - Only a small part, but I do not think that it would have been possible to play it any better.

    Yes.
    With Dennis Hopper as Clifford Worley and Christopher Walken as Vincenzo Coccotti. In the "EggPlant" scene. The dialog should have alone won an award thanks to writer Quentin Tarantino. This is a must have DVD for any hard core movie junkies collection!

    Linda Hunt as Billy Kwan in The Year of Living Dangerously. She won an Oscar for her role as a male Indonesian dwarf.

Note this was not Linda Hunt playing a woman pretending to be a man, like Barbra Streisand did in Yentl (1983) or, in reverse, as Dustin Hoffman did in Tootsie (1982), but Hunt playing a man in a serious drama.

    Lenardo De Caprio - What's Eating Gilbert Grape - This was the first time that I had seen LDC and thought that he played the part of Arnie wonderfully.
