I need to watch My Left Foot again. I honestly don't know how he managed to act that part so convincingly, you never once consider this guy doesn't have cerebral palsy.

I hesitate to say anyone is the "greatest living actor", given what that honorific entails. It is hard to argue that he doesn't deserve it, though.

I watched it in high school english class for some reason. It's a very compelling performance but I honestly don't remember particularly liking the movie for whatever reason. Maybe I was uncultured.

Is this movie good? For some reason I can't bring myself to watch it. Fuck this clip is hard enough. And I don't mean in a bad way.
Yeah, it's good.

As everyone knows, Day-Lewis is a method actor and he tries to stay in role the whole time he is playing a part, even off camera. I remember reading an article quoting the girl he was dating at the time he did My Left Foot. She was complaining because he made her wheel him around in a wheelchair and help him eat at home and when they went out to restaurants etc.

Dude only has 30 acting credits for his career, not too difficult to narrow it down to 10 especially when a chunk of those were early small or uncredited roles.

So for more Daniel Day Lewis good ness try:
For Micheal Mann goodness try:
Also the Miami Vice TV pilot is a kick ass standalone movie.

According to the "Making of My Left Foot" segment on the Special Edition DVD, Daniel Day-Lewis broke two ribs during filming from assuming the hunched-over position in his wheelchair for weeks of filming. He also would refuse to come out of character. On visits to the set canteen, other people would have to help him with food. On one visit from his English agent, Day-Lewis again refused to come out of character as Christy Brown, and his frustrated agent took off.

Such beautiful music in this film.

Literally said on discord a few days ago that "Promontory" is the ultimate trad-chad theme music.

And that you can watch the last 7 minutes of the movie and it will still be awesome even if you never saw the rest
