10 List: Jeff Bridges

One of my favorite actors, Jeff Bridges, has great presence and subtlety. Several of his best performances were directed by first-time filmmakers, which says a lot. The following films are for me, his finest work:

With Cybill Shepherd in The Last Picture Show

The Last Picture Show, Peter Bogdanovich (1971)

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Michael Cimino (1974)

Starman, John Carpenter (1984)

The Fabulous Baker Boys, Steve Kloves (1989)

The Fisher King, Terry Gilliam (1991)

Fearless, Peter Weir (1993)

The Big Lebowski, Joel and Ethan Coen (1998)

The Door in the Floor, Tod Williams (2004)

Crazy Heart, Scott Cooper (2009)

True Grit, Joel and Ethan Coen (2010)
