Stranger Than Paradise
The Man Who Knew Too Much
Yroc: Of course a film can be at once a documentary and an experimental film. “Symbiopsychtaxiplasm,” for one.
Performance – Mick Jagger
Lady Sings the Blues – Diana Ross
’Round Midnight – Dexter Gordon
Girl on a Motorcycle – Marianne Faithfull
Head – The Monkees
The Magic Christian – Ringo Starr
The Man with the Golden Arm – Frank Sinatra
@ZBART I’ve never heard of that one. I’ll definitely have to check it out. I agree wholeheartedly about a film be a doc and a work of experimental cinema at the same time, and I suppose that is what Sympathy For The Devil is.
I guess, in a sense, the cinema verite style is a sort of documentary style of film but not in the same way as Sympathy…
pat garrett and billy the kid :) 2 for 1
Man on the Train – Johnny Hallyday
Days of Being Wild – Leslie Cheung
A really bad one is the giallo made in America – Order of Death, or Corrupt with Johnny Rotten and Harvey Keitel
David Bowie in The Man Who Fell to Earth.
Art Garfunkel in Bad Timing.
Once" with the guy from "the frames
the Beatles in A Hard Day’s Night and Help!
and I thought Meatloaf was the only good part in Fight Club
Tom Waits was great in Short Cuts
Levon Helm, of The Band, in A Coal Miner’s Daughter
oh, just remembered Ringo Starr and David Essex in That’ll Be The Day
@RACHELLEIGH I really do like Meatloaf’s performance in Fight Club but I wouldn’t say it’s the only good part. The stylish directions and soundtrack are two of the best parts of the film. Let’s also not forget Jared Leto’s Angel Face character getting his shit beat in.
I guess this doesn’t necessarily count cause it’s a tv show but Loudon Wainwright III on Undeclared. Probably the best part of that show along with Jason Segal.
Mick Jagger in Performance
Bowie in TMHFTE
Richard Hell in Smithereens for sentimental value.
OH shiiiii Pat Garrett and Bily the Kid tooo!
Sting in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (not necessarily a major role)
Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Eminem in The Wash (not a great example)
@RUBY STEVENS As far as I’m concerned, we shouldn’t have to even mention the Fridays—their greatness is common knowledge.
A Hard Days Night
@YROC for sure, it was a good day :)
Kris Kristoferssen in Cisco Pike
Mick Jagger in Performance
Art Garfunkel in Bad Timing
David Bowie: Man who fell to earth, Merry Christmas, Basquait( not a bad Andy Warhol)
Mos Def- Brown Sugar
Vanilla Ice- Go Ninja GO ninja GO! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II
Jack White- Dewey Cox
DMX- Belly;Romeo Must Die; Never Die Alone
2Pac – Bullet, and the movie he did with Tim Roth
Q-Tip= Holy Rollers
Issac Hayes – Truck Turner
Frank Sinatra = From Here to Eternity, Oceans 11, Man with the Golden Arm
Eddie Fischer – Skiddo
RZA= Ghostdog (yeah he is in it for two seconds but just to be in that movie is awesome)
Nas in Belly
RZA in American Gangster
Mos Def in Something That The Lord Made/Be Kind Rewind/16 Blocks/Bamboozled
Beanie Siegle in State Property/State Property 2
The White Stripes in Coffee & Cigarettes
Iggy Pop in Coffee & Cigarettes
Will Oldham in The Guatemalean Handshake
Paul Simon in Annie Hall
Tyrese in Four Brothers/Transformers 1 & 2
The Man Who Fell to Earth
Best films is the key word state property 1 and 2 do not qualify nor does RZA in American Gangster nor does Tyrease in any Transformers movie, Andree 3000 was better in Four Brothers but I still did not like the movie overall..
@RUDY That’s true, so we can dismiss the state property films (although jay-z was actually pretty funny in the first one) and RZA in Amercan Gangster. I don’t think either Tyrese or Andre 3000 were particularly good in that film. Actually, no one was really that good in that film. As a matter of fact, John Singleton has been a disappointment for a few years now, hasn’t he?
Art Garfunkel in Bad Timing and Catch-22. He was surprisingly great.
Ah I dunno. Art was kinda bad in Catch-22, methinks. Total dry line readings.
But two fantastic movies that weren’t mentioned, Oshima’s “Three Resurrected Drunkards” and “Sing a Song of Sex”
i dont care what anyone says eminem in 8 mile ……….. fucking great performance
