My Top Ten Willem Dafoe Movies

Happy Birthday to Willem Dafoe, who is 62 tomorrow.

I have to admit that I’m not necessarily a huge fan of Dafoe. I think he’s a decent actor & has been in an interesting range of films but my main reason for even giving him much thought is probably because he’s one of so few actors from my home state. Why are there so few famous people from my state?!

As with all my actor top tens, these are ranked from my least favorite to favorite movie instead of by performance (Although, to be honest, number one is probably my favorite performance as well. He’s awesome in that!). So here are My Top Ten Willem Dafoe Movies:

  1. Love me some Willem Dafoe. But I gotta tell ya, a lot of the movies in your haven’t seen list are freaking classics… To Live and Die in LA, Boondock Saints, Grand Budapest Hotel, Once Upon a Time in Mexico… If nothing else they should at least knock The English Patient off of your top 20.

    • Well, I’ll TRY to watch those. Someday. Except maybe Grand Budapest Hotel (I can’t get into those Wes Anderson movies). Maybe if you watch Stand By Me….. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (I’m sure it’s better than The English Patient, of course)
