Performances I Like

I am often asked about what actors I like.  I find that it is easier to think in terms of specific performances rather than actors who I like consistently (this is kind of rare, since a lot depends on the quality of the director involved). So here is a list of performances I like.  I'll just add to it as performances occur to me or as I see them.

Note: That I like a performance in a movie doesn't mean that I like the movie itself.
  • Vera Farmiga in Up in the Air
  • Robert Forster in Jackie Brown
  • Gena Rowlands in Opening Night
  • Noomi Rapace in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
  • Mark Wahlberg in The Departed
  • Robert De Niro in The Deer Hunter
  • Tom Hardy in Inception
  • Elle Fanning in Somewhere
  • Michelle Williams in Blue Valentine

  • Robin Wright in 9 Lives
