Film Quizzes – Robert de Niro

With de Niro’s 72nd birthday yesterday, I did a celebratory reblog of one of my first ever features. But one post was never going to be enough for such a film icon, so I’ve added an extra-sized quiz in tribute. To make it slightly trickier, I’ve decided not to include the two films he won an Oscar for to make space for some of his lesser-known films. Where do you rate him among the modern day acting greats? Do you have a favourite performance of his?

    • Two very different kind of films. Wag the Dog is brilliant satire. Flawless is some of the best acting you’ll ever see, especially if you’re a fan of Seymour Hoffman. It’s a really impressive score 🙂

  1. I use to be an enormous fan, my screen name use to be “bobbyD”(which is a tad embarrassing).
    They’re subtle but for whatever reason I’ve always loved him in Stanley & Iris and Falling in Love.

      • Yes:I really didn’t like Hide and Seek. Did you see that one? It was kind of a throwaway movie. I don’t love him in comedy usually but I just remembered Midnight Run, that was a great comedy/adventure movie. I’m scrolling through his filmography now, I feel like I should do a project and re-watch so many of his movies sometime.
        Stanley & Iris is a drama about a poor-working class man and woman that meet and Iris (Jane Fonda) realizes that Stanley can’t read(I know it sounds corny but it isn’t!) and Falling In Love is another drama about two married people that meet and, you guessed it, fall in love and begin an affair. Meryl Streep is the love interest. I like the movie because it’s not very judgemental and just tells the story.

    • Well think of the famous ones not on the list. Godfather 2, Casino, Raging Bull, Once upon a time in America, The Untouchables, Sleepers, Jackie Brown, American Hustle…

    • I caught a celebrity edition of Mastermind a while back and one of the guests had chosen Robert De Niro as their specialist topic. I remember thinking how tricky as he’s done so many films.
