    Apocalypse Now and Streetcar Named Desire. Along with The Godfather obviously.

    Kinky scott. ^^

    As general and mainstream as it may sound, The Godfather did it for me. The first 15 minutes was all that was necessary to confirm his acting genius.

    He was kind of not actually there in Apoc Now. Therefore, I vote The Godfather and Streetcar D (which sounds like an anime series when put like that).

    But just his general mood, the way he talked, his foreboding nature...only Brando could do that well.

    The Godfather.

    I didn't like the movie, but what a performance.
