    I was never a big Robin Williams fan, but his work in What Dreams May Come was unwordly.

    Heath Ledger as the Joker was fantastic.

    Robert Duvall in the Godfather and The Judge...superb.

    Pacino in scarface

    Nicole Kidman in Cold Mountain.

    But the best acting performance is Tom Brady whenever the Patriots need a flag to bail them out. Just masterful.

    DDL in There Will Be Blood or Gangs of New York was the first person who came to mind before reading any posts. When I think of exemplary acting and total immersion in character that takes you to a different place - there is DDL and then there is everyone else. He is phenomenal.

    A few others:

    Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka
    Gandolfini as Tony Soprano
    Leo in The Aviator

    I love Duvall and was so excited when The Judge was coming out - and the movie couldn't have fallen any flatter for me. I'm not even sure if I was able to finish it... But sometimes I am just in the wrong mood and I may appreciate it later... Should I rewatch?

    You have to watch that movie when you aren't in a good mood. It's not a sad movie, nor a happy movie. It's sort of 'realish' in a way.

    Leonardo is good in everything. Gilbert Grape I would say is one of his best . I tell ya who I like is Lou Diamond Phillips. saw him recently in the series Longmire. he may not be as versatile throughout the movies he's been in, but it made me think that he was pretty good in Blackhawk down (if that's the one with Meg Ryan as the helicopter pilot). with that said, here's my list:

    Grahm Green-a lot of his roles, I just like him. I guess when he plays the reservation Indian that's still stuck in the old Indian way. just kinda a likable and mysterious fellow.

    Edward Norton in American History X
    DeNiro in that one vegas movie/mob stuff, pretty hard core-Casino

    I thought Gary Busey was amazing in The Buddy Holly Story.

    He actually played the guitar and sang the songs himself, as well as losing 30+ pounds for the part. Pretty amazing.

    How about Val Kilmer in the doors or Matthew Mccunnahay in DBC

    Didn't watch them, so I don't know. Did they actually do all the singing and instrument playing?
