Greatest Acting Performances On Film


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Michael Keaton - Batman
182 Denzel Washington - Flight
183 Minoru Chiaki - The Hidden Fortress

Kamatari Fujiwara was good, too, but Chiaki stood out more, his expressive baby face constantly morphing into hilariously ugly gurns.
Tahei is completely unlike Chiaki's other roles, which have had an elegance and warmth to them. He is a crude, slovenly, swarthy peasant, and a petty, blubbering coward, exactly the sort that Kikuchiyo (God rest his soul) had ranted about in 'Seven Samurai'. Chiaki's performance here is in the same vein as one of Mifune's: Confident, spirited and unrelenting. - SourNote2014

184 Go Ah-sung - The Host

As Park Hyun-seo, Go brilliantly plays a character who, though trapped and helpless, is clever and brave. And she does it with a lot of confidence and poignancy. - SourNote2014
