Posted: February 12, 2010

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”.

    My favorite villain is Burt Lancaster’s performance as J.J. Hunsecker in “The Sweet Smell of Success.”

    Seargentflick’s right! Walter was wonderful in “Play Misty For Me.”
