Greatest Acting Performances On Film


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Jared Leto - Dallas Buyers Club Jared Leto - Dallas Buyers Club
182 Brad Pitt - 12 Monkeys Brad Pitt - 12 Monkeys
183 Lee Van Cleef - It Conquered The World

It was a horrible movie, sure, but Van Cleef was just giving it his all. I wonder if he mistook the movie for a serious domestic drama instead of a cheesy monster movie, but nevertheless, he was amazing in it.

I think it may be one of my favourite bad movies. - SourNote2014

184 Will Ferrell - Elf Will Ferrell - Elf
185 Michael Keaton - Batman Michael Keaton - Batman
186 Denzel Washington - Flight Denzel Washington - Flight
187 Minoru Chiaki - The Hidden Fortress 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

188 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

190 Ellen Page - Juno Ellen Page - Juno
191 Robert De Niro - Once Upon A Time In America Robert De Niro - Once Upon A Time In America
