The Nineties Revisited: Ep. 2

So here's a second installment of reviewing the nineties. See the previous entry on the Supporting Women HERE.

Who were your favourites back in the day?

Few actors captured the imaginations of moviegoers more...and then disappeared so completely..than Jaye Davidson in "The Crying Game". Maybe the role seems quaint today, but in 1992 I was absolutely convinced. And he gave a great performance, creating a character I believed in and responded to emotionally.

I would argue that Anthony Hopkins in "Silence of the Lambs" was a supporting role, Academy bylaws notwithstanding.

I also liked William H. Macy in "Fargo" and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in "Boogie Nights".

I totally echo the love for Jude Law in 'Ripley', and as Tom said William H. Macy in 'Fargo' as well.

tom i did not like the crying game. the only films i remember fondly from 1992 are howards end and batman and to a small extent - unforgiven

peter it was either landau or macy, and i went for macy. he is good, though.
