Personally I think Taxi Driver is De Niro's best performance. It just about pips Raging Bull a close second, Godfather 2 third, King of Comedy fourth with Heat & Goodfellas tied for fifth.

Midnight Run and Deerhunter almost made it in there. Honourable mentions.
No Dirty Grandpa?

But he’s still acted in a lot of excellent movies over the past 30 years.

Don't know about 'objectively best' roles, but my personal favorites are all but 1 from the last 30 years:
Ronin, Heat, Score, Midnight Run, Bronx Tale, 15 Minutes and Jackie Brown!

But maybe it’s the case for some people due to political tribalism and his being so outspoken about his views (not at all suggesting this about you).
That's definitely about me, because he's acting like an asshole child with both Down and Tourette syndromes.
But no kind of behavior can detract from his amazing career, and if I was to 'hate' all the 'liberal' actors, I'd only be left with James Woods, Jim Caviezel, and Jon Voight. :D

Jackie Brown is a wonderful, subtle performance, beautifully nuanced. Good call :thumbs:

You managed to sit through ‘15 Minutes’ but have never watched ‘Jaws’?

‘Midnight Run’ and ‘A Bronx Tale’ (just) are both over 30 years old now though and ‘Heat’ will be there next year. Time’s flying, man.

DeNiro is simply a great actor, he is brilliant in lot of films, he acts always the same, Im not sure why EXACTLY in Taxi Driver it should be his best performance :bored: but he is great in it of course. For me his best roles are in Casino/Goodfellas, mobsters just fits for him the best! But his performance is nothing less in OUATIA, A Bronx Tale, Heat, King of Comedy, Raging Bull, The Deer Hunter, Cape Fear and many more. He´s great actor.
