Glengarry Glen Ross
The Usual Suspects
Se7en
A Bugs Life
LA Confidential
The Negotiator
American Beauty
Midnight in the garden of Good and Evil
Margin Call
Moon
21
Horrible Bosses
Elvis&Nixon
Baby Driver

And House Of Cards

Recently watched 21, where he plays a MIT professor who is also a con man and robs Vegas for millions with his card counting scheme, best scene is where he is in disguise at casino and acts like a hillbilly really.

De Niro, Brando, Hoffman, Pacino, Nicholson, Hackman, don't compare

The recent controversy aside, is he the best American actor?
