>>61781668 Aw man this is hard. Dustin Hoffman was so... I don't know, natural as an underdog type of character which he consistently played. Watch him in Straw Dogs for example. His meek portrayal makes the final gunfight so utterly satisfying, because the whole movie Dustin has successfully gotten the audience on his side. However, I think that likability might be a detriment because thinking about it, with a few exceptions Hoffman has largely played himself in his seminal works. The only time he wasn't a likable underdog type was Lenny. Even in Death of a Salesman he had a charming scumbag demeanor. I gotta give the edge to DeNiro, who I think has shown a lot more versatility, playing both the despicable lowlife and the dignified business man with deft precision. I recommend The Last Tycoon to you all.
>>61781668 That wouldn't be an unpopular opinion in the 70s. Today, among a lot of (younger?) people he's not regarded as high as he once was. Probably because he didn't play as many flashy characters as Pacino and De Niro.
