  1. James Thomas Sutcliffe (professionally known as Tom Sutcliffe) - journalist and critic Reply

    An absurd list, this, that is almost entirely film-stars and limited to the more-or-less English-speaking and comparatively recent world, and without practically any of the great actresses there have been. In almost all the performers do indeed act. But the only way to establish what really great acting is depends on live performance before an audience in a theatre – where the actor or actress fully controls the relationship he or she has with the audience. Films leave that control to directors and cinematographers – which means that the acting never needs the consistency of characterisation that is fundamental in the live theatre! Cinema acting consists of appropriate bits of a performance selected and edited mostly in close-up. It is almost never great acting, however persuasive the indulgent process of filming may make it. Do not claim falsehoods and remember what the art really is about which you want to preach. Celebrate what is good but acknowledge what that quality may be and where it originates. Film is a wonderful collaborative art. Theatre and truly great acting are somewhat different – and a lot more demanding.

    To be honest, the list is good but not great. There are many reasons.
    First, I’ll go with the Indian actors present in this list.
    *Kamal Hassan at 10th is absurd. He should be way above it.
    *Mammootty at 21? There’s some serious issue with the list. These two are the most versatile actors in the world. Perhaps you’ve not seen all the roles they did.

    Now, I agree that Charlie Chaplin is one of the greatest actors to have ever lived. But he would not be at the top if Marlon Brando is present there.
    There are dozens of actors across the world better than Christian Bale. Still he is present in this list, don’t know why.
    When does true acting succeed? It succeeds when the character depicted by the actor lives in the heart of the audience even after seeing the film for years. Considering this fact and many other reasons to be observed, I am a little dissatisfied with the list given above.
