"My Left Foot" and "The Boxer" are just a pair of good performances by this underrated actor. . .and don't forget about "Last of the Mohicans" which is cs's most underrated date-movie ever. . .

Daniel Day-Lewis is a superbly talented, versatile, and perfectionistic craftsman with an impressive body of work, including A Room with a View, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, My Beautiful Laundrette, The Last of the Mohicans, The Age of Innocence, In the Name of the Father, and Gangs of New York. My favorite of his performances is My Left Foot, which won him numerous awards, including the Academy Award for Best Actor.

That he is currently 61st on this list is utterly baffling, as his ratio of great performances to the number of films he's appeared in is staggering. Brilliant in virtually every film he's appeared in, and is one of those actors who can make an ok film seem like a great one. Take "Gangs of New York": each time I see it it gets worse. DiCaprio and Diaz were simply miscast, almost to the point of being totally absurd. Jim Broadbent was very good as Boss Tweed, but Day-Lewis made that film, his portrayal of a Know-Nothing type, a crude, violent, boorish, but sometimes amusing butcher/gangster, based on apparently a real 1850's gangster named "Bill the Butcher"( there are a fair amount of historical inaccuracies in the flick) made you feel simultaneously sympathetic and mortified by this thug who could not accept the sweeping social changes of the Civil War era. He made a good, but flawed film seem like a great one with his riveting performance. He was also particularly brilliant in "In the Name of the Father" as a young Belfast kid framed by the British, and many other roles. A superb actor.

He's such an impressive actor. He really goes out of his way to get into character. He was absolutely brilliant in My Left Foot. I love the fact that he's very picky about the roles he takes.

He is truly the best actor of our time and deserves all the awards and honors that can be bestowed on one performer. I just saw In the Name of the Father this weekend and was blown away by his performance. He became the character and it was just incredible to watch him knowing that he really wasn't that person he was portraying and probably had never lived that life. Yet I don't think anyone could have created a better performance. He was so real - in a none distracting way. I read on the internet that he actually tries to live, in real life, as the characters he is trying portray. It is obvious when you see his movies because he really is that character. I saw him years ago in My Left Foot. Though I was too young to really understand the film the memory of his performance - superior acting ability - still stays with me (visually in my mind) to this day. Do yourselves a favor and go see a couple of his films today and see what a truly phenomenal actor really is. It isn't an action star, Tom Cruise, or Brad Pitt - it is the most top class actor of the century - Daniel Day Lewis.

best actor of his generation: my beautiful laundrette, a room with a view, the unbearable lightness of being, my left foot, the last of the mohicans, the age of innocence, in the name of the father, the crucible, the boxer, and gangs of new york what a body of work!
