5 Favorites #77: 5 Favorite Robert De Niro Performances

Every week, we'll pose a new "five favorites" question. You just list your five favorites that fit in that category (preferably in preference order) and you're welcome to discuss and debate the selections and see just how much you do or do not have in common with others. If you want to take a look back at our past articles to comment or enjoy, here is a post set aside to track all of our articles.

We haven't done a living actor in some time, so I figured it was time to start again. Let's hit an actor whose comedic work of recent years hasn't sufficiently held a candle to his older work, so let's give him a reminder of the performances we think were his best.

What are your 5 Favorite Robert De Niro performances?
