Brazil (1985)

Brazil is a 1985 dystopian black comedy film directed by Terry Gilliam. Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) is a harried technocrat in an overly complicated and inefficient futuristic civilization. He fantasizes about a life free of technology and bureaucracy, where he may spend eternity with the woman of his dreams. Lowry meets Jill Layton (Kim Greist), the woman he has been chasing in his dreams while attempting to rectify the wrongful arrest of one Harry Buttle (Brian Miller). Meanwhile, the bureaucracy has blamed him for a thread of terrorist bombings, putting Sam and Jill's lives in jeopardy.


Despite its popularity in Europe, the film's initial release in North America was a flop. It's since become a cult classic. Brazil was ranked the 54th best British film of all time by the British Film Institute in 1999.

GoodFellas (1990)

Goodfellas was also chosen as the greatest film of the year by a number of reviewers' organizations.


De Niro doesn't have the most prominent part in Goodfellas, but his performance is crucial to the film's plot. The film follows Henry Hill, a mid-level Mafia figure who is friends with De Niro's character Jimmy Conway. Even though DeNiro has worked with Scorsese on several occasions to play protagonists, his role here is to be seductive and sinister. Conway, played by De Niro, is both friendly and dangerous, like all good mobsters. He's not reckless, which is part of what makes him such a dangerous presence in a film full of men who can't seem to keep their cool.

Raging Bull (1980)

Any best-of collection Many of Robert De Niro's works with Martin Scorsese will have Raging Bull, in which he plays boxer Jake La Motta, maybe his best performance. De Niro portrays La Motta, a wounded, prideful man who has lots of talent in the ring but is hugely self-destructive outside of it, for which he got in terrific condition. Raging Bull is a film about failure as well as achievement, and it features some of Scorsese's greatest direction in his impressive career.


Raging Bull is one of Robert De Niro's most powerful performances of all time, among all the films he has been in. His depiction of Jake LaMotta, a former boxer turned stand-up comic, is a stunning portrait of a man you love to hate. You pity, sympathize and hate him all at the same time. It's no surprise that he won an Oscar for this performance and that Raging Bull is still considered one of De Niro's greatest performances.
