Don't get me wrong. I don't think Silva is a brilliant actor, his attitude in movies makes him a good part for some kind of a crime lord or bad ass in those movies. :) Trust me I would't pick Silva to take over Clint Eastwoods part. I am only speaking of Italian Crime and the whole point of asking was not to get more names of American actors but to find out what YOUR favorites are. I am new here in case you didnt notice and would like to find out more about what your likes and dislikes are. Hope thats ok!  :D

Welcome Kalibre 38!

I am sure Kalibre meant "most entertaining actor" or "most badass actor" or "most suitable for the Italian crime genre". Silva lacks the versatility of Tomas Milian or Franco Nero (who could play almost any kind of role) but he is damn perfect at the few things he does. So I wouldn't agree with Comp who says he lacks in talent. I would only agree with that statement if Silva was bad or laughable in his roles. He is not.

Maybe Bronson if he'd appeared in more.

I'm surprised there aren't any reviews up yet for REVOLVER or VIOLENT CITY. >:(

Bronson and Eastwood hardly starred in Euro-Cult films and they are hardly remembered for that stuff, so I am surprised they are mentioned here. However, it would have been nice if they had done more stuff, specially crime films :)

a lot of Bronson's earlier films were of European origin, mate - stuff like RED SUN, FAREWELL FRIEND, COLD SEAT, VILACHI PAPERS, VIOLENCT CITY, etc. I think people tend to categorise a lot of his European films as "American films shot abroad".

Adieu l'ami (Farewell Friend) is an intelligent and underrated heist film starring Charles Bronson and Alain Delon.
This film deserves to be better known IMO.

Hold on,don't spaghetti westerns  count as Euro-Cult,and everyone knows Leones films? :D

Anyway as regards crime thrillers Bronson is great in VIOLENT CITY and REVOLVER,as are the movies themselves which turned me unto exploring further into the genre.

But again about sw's,the likes Jean-Lous Trintignant,Henry Fonda,Rod Steiger or James Coburn never starred in more than a couple,but to all but the most die-hard sw fans are amongst the most remembered from this genre. :-X

I guess they do count but how many of them did Bronson and Eastwood do? I said hardly cause they haven't done more than a couple.

CRY OF A PROSTITUTE is a gem! How about an English-speaking DVD release Marin?  :D
