    1. A solid list and always difficult to argue with your selections. I'm happy with the ones I picked, but thought I'd comment on the ones you had that didn't make my list.

      I feel the last part of Apocalypse Now is the weakest part, and that Brando overacts. But that's my personal opinion.

      I've seen Scum, but don't remember it much or Winstone's performance. But I know it was a powerful film and he's always an interesting actor.

      Life of Brian isn't a favorite, but it has some funny moments and all the Monty Python actors are memorable in it.

      I first thought it was the George Kennedy film The Human Factor, but that one's from 1975 ;) Haven't seen this one, but know about it. As for Nicol Williamson, I enjoyed him in another South African set film in The Wilby Conspiracy (1975). Good and creepy actor for sure.

      Very tough to not include Eastwood on the list, but he's on the short list and might make it on a later date :)

      Scheider was good in All That Jazz, but had expected a bit more and the film didn't do it for me.
