I love that Ledger is your pick for number 1 - his work in BM is my all time favorite performance, right after Naomi Watts in Mulholland Drive.
There was never any doubt in my mind. Ledger's performance is one of the most moving, masterful performances in the history of cinema. I also adored Watts' outstanding turn in Mulholland Drive. That movie made her one of my favourite actresses!
Nice pick for Ulrich. I absolutely love The Lives of Others. I counted and we agree on 4 performances: Brody, Carrey, Crow and Firth.
We have pretty similar tastes Nika! It's scary ;) hahaBut seriously, Ulrich moved me to tears the second time I saw The Lives of Others. That scene where he's listening to the classical composition about "A Good Man," just moved me to the core.
Yup, I now see it, hahaWell, this movie is a test to my emotions every time I watch it.
