Yeah, but if we’re talking BEST performance wise Brando won’t be remembered for The Godfather, and Pacino was iconic as Tony Montana, but that certainly wasn’t his best performance.


#9

The Godfather is great,but I love Brando´s acting in “Missouri Breaks” (not to mention “Apocalypse Now”).

One of the greatest performances for me is Sean in “Mystic River”!

for me brando is on the waterfront before (or same value as) the godfather. speaking of a coppola movie:
