    Mathieu Amalric is unbelievable IMO. I'm glad the world will have the chance to see him perform a little more than in "Munich" with the upcoming release of Schnabel's movie. Can't wait for that one to come to America!

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

    Letters petitioning the studios to release a special edition box set piling up on the coffee table.

    For actrices, I would have to say Merryl Streep, Mirren, and Edi Falco.

    Bale is definitely a very good actor, I usually like him way better than the movies he stars in, he's one of the few american actors who can elevate a picture.

    nm. violinist beat me to it.

    And i would definitely put dicaprio in there.

    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.


    Not really, Film like painting or drawing is art therefor is subjective. I like manet but I find that monet is not to my taste. So yes i can dislike theactors of my generation and still know somethng about about film, so go stuff it as wipe.

    I'm surprised that you cannot find ANYONE (DeNiro, Hoffman, Pacino, Nicholson etc... etc..) that matches the theatric "brilliance" of the incomparable Humphrey Boghart. Like, are you serious? You're honestly telling me that none of the above actors, including people like Edward Norton, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and Phillip Seymour Hoffman cannot match the earthshattering talent of Boghart? That's fine to have an opinion, but there's a point where a "subjective" opinion becomes so absurd that it cannot be taken seriously. Have you opinion, that's fine, but don't claim to know anything about film.

    He played in Munich? Should I check this one out? I don't like Spielberg but the thematic is interesting and reminds me of a pretty good tv series I saw as a kid about black september and its aftermath.

    I like Desplechin's movies a lot and think his recurring cast of actors is pretty good. Also dig the Jaoui/Bacri crew.

    There must be some very solid eastern european actors working right now and their cinema is on the rise but i'm not sure who to check out.

    Stop stealing our fine Englishmen. A few on my List: Forest Whitaker Isabella Hupert Hugo Weaving Gael GarcÃa Bernal Vincent Cassel Christian Bale Eric Bana
