    People who say things like that usually only see big blockbuster films.

    If you can't find one nice thing to say about the many talented actors there are today, then you probably don't know much about film at all.

    He's a bit past my generation, but I'm surprised that nobody's mentioned Daniel Day Lewis. He's really the only reason Gangs of New York was watchable. If you get a chance, check him out in the new movie "There Will Be Blood". Phenomenal performance.

    Probably one of those "earlier is always better - later is worse" dullards....[​IMG]

    Absolutely. Unfortunately, he's been so typecast in English language movies that his talent may not be apparent to all

    Eastern promises (a pretty bad film overall) is especially guilty of this.

    Sarah Polley is very good, I also like Romain Duris a lot, but mainly because of "the beat that my heart skipped". Another good french actor is Mathieu Almaric. Maggie Cheung has grown quite a lot in recent years.
