John Malkovich and Glenn Close play VERY villainous characters in Dangerous Liaisons. Who is your favorite movie villain? Neal Gabler picks the witch in Snow White.
I LOVE the bad guys and gals! They’re the best characters! My all time favorite is Peter Lorre in “M.” And close seconds are: Kathy Bates in “Misery;” Glenn Close in “Fatal Attraction;” Geoffrey Rush in “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl;” Jack Nicholson in “The Shining;” Anthony Hopkins in “The Silence of the Lambs;” Anthony Perkins in “Psycho;” Louise Fletcher in “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest;” Malcolm McDowell in “A Clockwork Orange;” Angela Lansbury in “The Manchurian Candidate;” Bela Lugosi in “Dracula;” Laurence Olivier in “Marathon Man;” Burt Lancaster in “Sweet Smell Of Success;” Peter Stormare in “Fargo;” Robert Walker in “Strangers on a Train;” and the great performance of Forest Whitaker in “The Last King of Scotland.”
Perhaps my most favorite villainous couple is Barbara Stanwyck and Fred McMurray in “Double Indemity”.
