2020-07-03T10:30:09+00:00

best film:  There Will Be Blood. There’s nothing terribly close so this film is absolutely huge for DDL’s resume. As of now it’s his lone masterpiece (I’m excited to revisit Phantom Thread after twice in

The 10th Best Actor of All-Time: Cary Grant

2020-07-03T10:30:09+00:00

best film: Bringing Up Baby is my top-rated screwball comedy and top-rated Howard Hawks film (three total in the top 100 of all-time). It ekes out as Grant’s best film ahead of North by Northwest

The 14th Best Actor of All-Time: Paul Newman

2020-07-03T10:30:11+00:00

best film:  Cool Hand Luke. Newman has only actually been in two masterpieces, this and Butch Cassidy. It’s a weakness if you’re looking at his resume and comparing him with the other all-time greats. However,

The 15th Best Actor of All-Time: William Holden

2020-07-03T10:30:11+00:00

best film:  The Wild Bunch. William Holden was in four masterpieces but none better than the 1969 Peckinpah fatalistic western. Holden leads the crew of rugged desperados (excellent work from Warren Oates, Ben Johnson and

best film:  Aguirre, the Wrath of God is the 31st best film of all-time and it is Herzog’s masterpiece. Kinski has actually been in some sneaky-good films outside of his famous collaborations with Herzog (Doctor

The 17th Best Actor of All-Time: Dustin Hoffman

2020-07-03T10:30:11+00:00

best film:  The Graduate remains Hoffman’s sole top 100 all-time film and it’s fitting because it’s also his best performance. I love Bonnie and Clyde and there are other important American films to mark the

The 18th Best Actor of All-Time: Gene Hackman

2020-07-03T10:30:11+00:00

best film:  The Royal Tenenbaums. This category is putting me to the test with my allegiance (as always, based on merit) to Wes Anderson and his crowning masterpiece, The Royal Tenenbaums. I don’t want to
