1. Videodrome
2. Once Upon a Time in America
3. Dirty Pictures
4. Another Day in Paradise
5. The Virgin Suicides

Just started watching him in Shark and have to say that could be the part which reinites his career.

One of my all-time favourite actors. Although he never really got the leading man big break he deserved, he's one of the best character actors around - especially if that character is a bit of a sleaze-bag

1: Salvador
2: Videodrome
3: Once Upon a Time in America
4: Casino
5: Split Image

Honourable mentions go to The Hard Way & Hercules

That film proves how well he does comedy too. Also love him in the Specialist even if the film is a bit pants, love his acting during the scene where he threatens to blow the building up

Quite often the very best thing in some less than stellar films -

Yup, as Brundle says: he is always great but has not been in much great stuff (in my opinion).

True dat.

1. Salvador
2. Once Upon a Time in America
3. The Hard Way (I love John Moss)
4. Cop
5. Videodrome

Just look at his IMDB list to see how little he has been used in notable films in recent years.

I was actually going to say that his best performances is where he played himself in The Simpsons and Family Guy.
