I’m gonna go with a couple of his older ones….it’s a tie between One Flew Over the Coo Coos Nest and Five Easy Pieces.

I am a sucker for film noir, so I gotta go with Chinatown.

As Good As It Gets was excellent. I think he performed well in that movie. I’m not sure if it’s his all-time best, but it deserves mention.

Cuckoo’s Nest without a doubt. Only The Shining comes anywhere near close.

Anytime he plays a bad guy. His evil laugh is number 1.

Have to answer MOVIES, plural. All the above, plus A Few Good Men, Hoffa, Wolf, Prizzi’s Honor and Missouri Breaks with Brando.

The Shining. Actually, that was the only movie I ever saw him play in but I enjoyed it. I do not watch tv or movies too often. He played a cool bad guy in that movie.

The Shining for sure. Easy Rider is another good one.

Cuckoo!! Cuckoo!! That was the first time I ever saw him, and that movie had me in tears. He’s gotten too dark and evilly since then, and I don’t really care for his movies.

It has to be The Shining.

He has made many really good films, but I really enjoyed As Good As It Gets.

filmfann's avatar

He was also really good in Mars Attacks, Broadcast News, Reds, and The Last Detail, but I gotta stick with Chinatown.

One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. But its really Will Sampson that makes the movie for me. He gets me every time.

I really need to read that book.
