    I can't do any impression of @Deuce Wayne does that mean he is a great actor?

    No. People believing I'm a great actor means I'm a great actor.

    And keep working on it. Believe in yourself.

    Ironic that Scorcese's foremost muse loses to his own successor here.
    I assume most folks on this forum have never seen The King of Comedy and probably thought Raging Bull/Taxi Driver needed more explosions.
    Decaprio excelled as a child actor. Never approached Deniro's great method acting period.

    I said the same thing in one of the previous threads. I think a lot of people's opinions are heavily skewed by De Niro's recent schlock. I don't really hold it too much against a dude in his 70's who straight killed it for decades. Let him cash those checks imo. Someone said he played the same role in every movie. They obviously never saw those movies you mentioned.

    Yeah he phoned it in for pretty much everything since Meet The Parents - though I heard he did well in the Madoff film. His 70's/80's stuff though was pretty stout method..

    To put into perspective... DDL never phoned it in and is retiring from acting. He may never stoop to low-level roles like DeNiro and Hopkins have.

    But he didn't make it.

    Also... didn't DDL go full retard in My Left Foot? Dicaprio and DDL might the only great actors to go full retard and remain stellar actors.
