Some Of The Greatest Movies From A Terrific Actor

By Brad Martin

While the Oscars generally do a great job of awarding actors who deserve it, I feel there is one actor they have snubbed so far in his career. That actor is Christian Bale.

Let’s take a look at some of his greatest performances.

If you didn’t see the Dark Knight, you must not be American. With all the hype and drama surrounding this movie, it managed to exceed everyone’s expectations, both in quality and in its box office take. A true comic book masterpiece, and one can only wonder how it did not get nominated for best picture.

In another film involving deception and playing two sides, Christian Bale was incredible in The Prestige. You never know until the end of this movie whether or not he is a good guy, which I cannot even imagine how hard that is to do. He stole the show from Hugh Jackman.

Two words. The Machinist. Bale weighed less than 130 pounds for this low budget psychological thriller, and that was right after he weighed 210 pounds for Batman Begins.

American Psycho – An instant cult classic, in American Psycho, Christian Bale plays Patrick Bateman better than anyone else I can image. The movie is a satire of the 1980s and Bale is both hysterical and terrifying at the same time. I have probably seen this one fifteen times.

Rescue Dawn – In another performance where Bale had to lose a ton of weight for the role, Rescue Dawn tells the true story of Dieter Dengler, a US pilot who was shot down and imprisoned in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam war.

Finally, 3:10 to Yuma was another fantastic performance by Christian Bale. A good western is hard to come by these days, but Bale and Russell Crowe managed to pull it off.
