With almost 30 years and over 80 films to his credit, Willem Dafoe has made his mark as one of the very best character actors. Here are Matt’s Movie Reviews picks for the Top Ten Willem Dafoe Performances.
He has done some great performances, but i think his work is very under-appreciated.
Having watched a bunch of his films of late, I totally agree.
How could they leave off his riveting performance in Body of Evidence? Outrageous!
Dafoe is an impressive actor and 1 of my favorites alongside Bryan Cranston.
No mention of Boondock Saints? Auto fail! I think that one has to be my favorite role of his hands-down. He did very well in Shadow of the Vampire and Last Temptation. But I'd easily put Boondock Saints above any of the other choices. And would easily be battling for first with the previously two mentioned.
What! No Anti-Christ, lol
Hey guys. Thank you for your comments. Much appreciated. Both Boondock Saints and Anti-Christ were considered, yet undiscovered gems like To Live & Die in L.A. and Light Sleeper knocked them out of the top 10. Dafoe has many great performances, yet these are the 10 I consider his best. Cheers, Matt
Anti-Christ was God awful I was joking
Thank you! After hearing quite a few people praise that movie, I finally got around to watching it. And god that was horrible to sit through. And I don't mean because of any graphic or controversial/provocative content (wasn't even as "controversial" to me as people made it out to be). But rather just because it was a bad movie.
The funny thing is I really don't like Lars Von Trier movies yet I will always check out the latest from him (watched Melancholia couple of days ago). His concepts aren't bad but the execution is horrible. I also feel sorry for all the bullshit the actors have to go through because of him
The GREATEST portrayal of Jesus by ANY ACTOR of any era!!!
Once upon a time in Mexico was his best role for me (drama wise I mean)
Boondock Saints was the best...you can't think of him without thinking of that part he played.
