Nominate your favorite movie ASSHOLE
My nominee is Alec Baldwin as Blake in Glengarry Glen Ross


"What's my name? My name is Fuck you.That's my name. You know why, mister? 'Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight, I drove an eighty thousand dollar BMW. *That's* my name.

"You see this watch? You see this watch? That watch costs more than your car. I made $970,000 last year. How much you make? You see pal, that's who I am, and you're nothing. Nice guy, I don't give a shit. Good father, fuck you. Go home and play with your kids. You wanna work here? Close. You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you cocksucker? You can't take this, how can you take the abuse you get on a sit?"

12. You do have a point
But no, Stein is a joke, a parody of himself. He's not scary enough.

3. There are so many...
a couple of my favourites:

Tim Robbins as Bob Roberts
Henry Fonda in "Once Upon A Time In The West"
Gary Oldman and Alan Rickman in quite a few of their roles
Alan Ford ("Bricktop") in "Snatch"

and several others...

16. I'll add a third vote for Fonda
Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 10:33 PM by Hardhead
Even though I already "voted." Definitely one for the poll.

Amazingly, I've never seen Bob Roberts. I love Oldman & Rickman, but I can't think of any role in particular.

And Bricktop, too.

20. I'm confused. Is this thread title really trying to say...
a) Name your favorite movie, ASSHOLE?

b) Name your favorite movie (named) "ASSHOLE?"

c) Name your favorite movie (shot by your) ASSHOLE?

d) Name your favorite movie ASS, (you) HOLE?

e) (You have scatalogical issues and can't stop thinking about your) ASSHOLE?

31. How about Daniel Day-Lewis as Bill the Butcher in "Gangs of New York"?
Or does he cross the line into "psychopath"?
