Top Ten 1982

BIL'S BEST ACTOR

Three years after his phenomenal performance in The China Syndrome, the greatness of Jack Lemmon achieved a career pinnacle with his performance in Costa-Gavras’ masterpiece Missing. It’s one of the greatest political thrillers ever made, and much of its brilliance comes from the genuinely human characters at the centre of all the political maneuvering; the scene where Lemmon begs to see his son while standing in the middle of a stadium with a microphone is one of the most moving moments in film history.
