The Best of Downy

May 11th, 2010 · No Comments

Robert Downy Jr. will be honored by the Gene Siskel Film Center at its upcoming gala on June 19. In anticipation for that event, I had a look over the broad range of roles the actor has amassed so far in his career. The order isn’t an attempt to quantify or rank the performances or the films. But these 10 films, in some order of priority, are essential viewing to appreciate Downey’s work over the last decade.

  1. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
  2. Tropic Thunder
  3. Iron Man
  4. Sherlock Holmes
  5. Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus
  6. The Singing Detective
  7. Zodiac
  8. A Scanner Darkly
  9. Charlie Bartlett
  10. A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints
