      Where is Arnold Schwarzenegger?

      Can we be honest and real here? How can you not go with Leo on this one? I know! He's young and was in Titanic. Just think about it for a minute though. He is SERIOUSLY good and engages himself into difficult roles like no other I've ever seen. Eastwood, Brando and De Niro are great actors but lack the versability and ability to truly adapt thoroughly.

      I'm by no means a fan of Leo but I see no other way here. His performance in Revolutionary Road, astonishing. Ignore the score, the reviews, the movie plot. Look beyond all that and observe the way he goes about his role in that movie. Second to none, let me tell you.

      Best performances, alltime - Actors:

      1. Revolutionary Road, Leonardo Dicaprio as "Frank Wheeler"
      2. Citizen Kane, George Orson Welles as "Kane"
      3. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Paul Newman as "Butch Cassidy"
      4. La Strada, Giulietta Masina as "Gelsomina"
      5. Harvey, James Stewart as "Elwood Dowd"

      Best performances, alltime - Directors:

      1. Mulholland Dr., David Lynch
      2. 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick
      3. Requiem for a Dream, Darren Aronofsky
      4. La vita è bella, Roberto Benigni
      5. Det sjunde inseglet, Ingmar Bergman

        Gary Oldman
        Edward Norton
        Gregory Peck

        3. John Wayne
        4. Charles Bronson
