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?
With the tragic death of one of Hollywood’s most astonishingly gifted and versatile actors, it felt only fitting to remember Philip Seymour Hoffman’s wonderful legacy in the films he made. He may no longer be with us, but his incredible talent will live on.
