Wow, how could you not mention "Last Temptation Of Christ"? That could be his finest performance.

Two of my fave Dafoe appearances: 'To Live and Die in LA' and his guest spot on 'Fishing with John.'  Willem's the man, I wish he would get more work.

I thought he was awesome in Boondock Saints.  That role was just made for him. He was also very good in Auto Focus....though his performance is overshadowed by Greg Kinnear's.

I wholeheartedly second that... what a jawdropping performance.

He owned Autofocus.
Definitely Last Temptation.

But, weak2nd, why To Live And Die?? Why does everyone love him in that? It seems like he's playing standard badguy...
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Perhaps it's the burning of paintings, I don't know.  I saw that movie when I was a wee lad and his role stuck with me.  It was one of the first times a villain in a movie seemed like more than a guy who was just a foil for the lead, and felt like a real person.

The title made me think it was the 4th in the American Pie series.

i loved willem dafoe in boondock saints. i was talking about that movie the other day at work when this guy comes in and drops a bunch of stuff off on the checkin section of the circulation desk. at a glance, i thought he was willem dafoe. it was kind of funny, so i started to tell him about it. the more he talked, the more he looked like willem dafoe even though it was not actually him. i asked him if he'd seen much of dafoe's work, and he kinda laughed. he pointed to the stack of dvd's he had just turned in... platoon and last temptation were in there.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.
