Best Actor

Ok, in terms of acting, who was the best in Resrvoir Dogs? I thought Steve Buscemi was brilliant, but I like eveything he's in (except Con Air.........PEE-U!)

The best actor in this movie was Steve. So cool. He was so cool.

Steve should get his own board, so we could talk about his amazing career........

Make a topic called "Steve Buscemi" in the non-tarantino movie board, and you can talk about him all you want. He was the best in Dogs.

Steve is as funny as hell in Dogs. I laughed my ass off at some of the shit that came out of his mouth. He was the best. Steve was also great in Fargo, the movie was pretty good but his parts were awsome.

Ever see ghost town? Steve practically has the lead role!

I was only joking about the board comment, but i really like Steve as as actor.

Harvey Keitel for me.  The man outshines everyone else in every scene he's in.

Keitel and Buscemi were both awesome in Dogs. I love Pink and White just has this don't-fuck-with-me attitude I love. But, seriously, nobody, and I mean nobody else could have played Blonde as perfectly as Madsen.

The best one was Michael Madsen! After Reservoir Dogs I'll never imagine Madsen as someone else. He fit perfecty with his character. Even looking at him in Kill Bill was somehow weird. The scene where he looked like Blonde, was in Vol.2. Massacre at two pines, when they came to eliminate everyone. Budd was so cool when he was killer not when acting a cowboy.

Harvey Keitel, back then he was probably the only 'big' actor (he and lawrence tierney) in it

hes simply my favorite actor ever because he has a quality wich is rare, he proves that in dogs too

I gotta go w/ Buscemi, he's just so frigg'in hilarious in dogs, and he's my favorite character actor of all time. In my opinion no one's better than Steve.

Buscemi was the best, but you have to give some credit to Tim Roth.  He had probably the toughest role in the movie, and he played it flawlessly.

Buscemi was the most enjoyable guy in the film, but in terms of acting ability you gotta hand it to Michael Madsen, he pulled off the psycho Blonde brilliantly!

Keitel was much better in Pulp Fiction, he was just so damn cool. His roles must be ellegant, he has to play aristocrats that play golf and snooker and visit evening parties. And Roth should play a lazy slacker who gets on everyones nerves, wears a Havaiian shirt and gets shot at the end. Buscemi and Madsen were the real gangsters.

Yes, yes that's what I always say! They really look like gangsters. And Eddie Bunker too. He looked pretty calm and dangerous. And maybe Tarantino, but we will never know how evil and gangsterish he really was.
Mr. Pink is egoistic, works fast and does what he has to do. He'll always do what will be best for him. And he is not cowardly. And Buscemi played this character very good.

I'm more impressed by Tim's work. I have a stomachache when he's racked with pain. His acting is the finest imo.

Even if I respect all the actor's efforts, I simply HAVE to pick Madsen.

Like someone else said, after RD, Michael will NEVER be some other character to me... he's born to play Mr. Blonde, similar to Brando being Vito Corleone. I believe it's really hard to portrait a character that far away from your own, personal character and still do a fantastic job at it. From what I heard, Madsen felt very uncomfortable doing the whole torture scence... but do you actually notice that? No, not a second, that's how well Michael plays that person. In my opinion, that deserves credit.

Steve could totally play that part and be really convinceing, in fact just imagine him playing Mr.Blone "are you gonna bark all day, or are you gonna bite"

OOO SACRALIGE! The idea of Mr Blonde being played by anyone else but Madsen, just seems...wrong. And besides that would mean somone else would have to play Steve's part, and we all know that no one could come close to playing Mr Pink as well as him  ;D

And I can't imagine Madsen playing other roles. Oh come on, Tarantino always finds the best roles for the right actors. Like Uma - I only like her in Tarantino movies. And Madsen - both Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs he played the very sadistic, "I'm cool" guy. And looks like he doesn't care much about other things and people.

Damn right! ;D

seriously though, I could imagine him playing Blone really well, also he could play a pretty cool Orange too, I can just see him bleeding all over the car in the second scene ;D, But I do think Steve is best as pink.

No, no, no! Buscemi can't play Orange bleeding in that car! He can play those sneaky, egoistic, sarcastic guys, who get on everyone's nerves, not a bleeding man in serious pain who even doesn't understand what he's saying.
Oh god, I'm so negatory, that's because I can't imagine those guys playing some other roles  ;D.

My favotites were Keitel and Roth. Harvey Keitel plays characters like his very nicely especially Mr. White and The Wolf. Tim Roth is my all-time favorite actor for some reason. He always has a kind of sophisticated character that has some secret or some inner conflict. I guess the exception would be the bellhop from Four Rooms that he played as.

looking back on it, i can't pin point which actor was better than the rest. everyone seemed to be right on their marks, but if i had to choose, i'd have to say Tierny solely because of the line "So mad at you guys i can hardly breathe. *sniff* let's go to work" the way he does that line and "okay, ramblers let's get ramblin'" and his confrontation with Keitel, it was on, it was on better than the rest of the movie because he was natural.

Keitel was great, but buscemi was awesome. he plays such a great whiny, sneaky, sarcastic character that its almost impossible to see anybody else but him play that role.

I'm bored and a little intoxicated tonight, so I'm a posting fiend...

Ok, really, I think the acting in this movie is so grossly underappreciated that it's tragic. It's hard to single one person out as the best. My unbiased opinion is that there is a certain brilliance to each of them.

Everyone loves Pink and Blonde... and as far as actors go, you don't get much better that those two.. In anything. Watching the subdance workshop scenes with Buscemi as white are just riduclously compelling. Pink is a character, y'know... he's wiry and we love him, but Buscemi  does so much more than that.

I likes me some Orange though. As an actor, that part is the most appealing to me. It's a challenge to do something so exhausting and over the top like that. And I'm a little turned on by the whole thing he's got going on... peverse? Maybe.

Keitel is a god.

I love seeing Holdaway on King of Queens... it's just a fabulous juxtapositon.

Tarantino is a movie geek after my own heart, and he, along with the rest of the minor shots here (blue, ect) fine... I know that Tierny was a nightmare... but he's really authetic as Joe.

Ramble, ramble, ramble....
