Robert De Niro vs. Al Pacino


(Silvanito) #1

Both Italian-American method actors of the same generation, who did their first movies in late 1960s/ early 1970s.

Who do you prefer?

Al Pacino, him as Michael Corleone is the most convincing performance I’ve ever seen.


(I...I...Idiot) #3

Pacino never lived his roles like DeNiro (putting on weight etc.). A true demi-god of modern actors & way more versatile.


(Bad Lieutenant) #4

Check out Insomnia


(I...I...Idiot) #5

Never saw it but I’ll note that he looks like he hasn’t slept since the Lunar Landing.

Pacino, which reminds me I really need to see Scarecrow again.

Pacino, Serpico’s my favourite of his


(I...I...Idiot) #8

Serpico is great. Very sad to me what he went through.

De Niro:

More versatile. More likeable but I still enjoy Pacino

Pacino

It’s a draw

I chose Pacino, but basically it’s a draw. It’s like… the Champions League of actors.
