Book - 2009
Rate this:
"With his breathtaking breakthrough performance in Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets in 1973 he forged an enormously fruitful collaboration - including Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas - that, alongside his roles in the likes of The Godfather Part Two, The Dear Hunter and Once Upon a Time in America, reads like a list of the top Hollywood films of the last 30 years. As a 'method' actor De Niro lives and breathes his roles to bring his unique intensity and brooding menace to the screen; be it feasting on pasta to gain 60lbs for Raging Bull or learning to play the saxophone for New York, New York, nothing is beyond him in his pursuit for perfectio- n. But he's certainly not above sending himself up, particularly in recent years, in filmns such as Analyse This and Meet the Parents, where he has honed a previously unheralded talent for comedy acting."--Book jacket.
