      Good list, some interesting choices. Hardy in "Bronson" was very impressive. It's also nice to see Giamatti here. Even though I only liked the movie so-so, his performance was brillant! I would have included Joaquin Phoenix as Johnny Cash. And even though the character is only loosely based on a real-life killer I might have added Michael Rooker in "Henry". Oh...and how about "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"?

      Nigel Hawthorne should be far higher up the list for The Madness of King George.

      No Mozart and No Salieri? Really? I expected Amadeus at the top. Full of garbage.

      Bruno Gainz should have been number 1, Number 40 = Really?, Ray Liotta as Henry Hill is a dubious choice even though it's a magic film my understanding that he was nothing like the real Henry Hill. Leonardo Di Caprio as Howard Hughes and Russel Crowe as John Nash should have been included. I also thought Martin Sheene made a better David Frost than he did Brian Clough.

      Most of A Beautiful mind was fabricated to the point where it barely qualified as a true life biopic. The producers maintained that "The film was not meant to be a literal representation" which is Hollywood speak for "We pulled any old sh't out of our arsses to fit the made-up narrative".

      Steve Coogan as Tony Wilson in 24 Hour Party People was a spot on impersonation.

      Cate Blanchett as 'Kate' Hepburn in Scorcese's "The Aviator"? Another great portrayal for 'Blue Jasmine'.
