Total Recall: Steve Buscemi's Best Movies

Summary

He hasn't always played the nicest characters, but both onscreen and off, Steve Buscemi has always come across as a pretty interesting person -- a gifted thespian, talented director, and former firefighter who helped clear rubble from the World Trade Center after 9/11, he's one ubiquitous character actor whose Hollywood success doesn't seem to have turned him into anything other than a regular guy from Brooklyn. Of course, in this weekend's The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, he's anything but regular... which is why we decided we couldn't miss the opportunity to dedicate a list to some of Buscemi's best-reviewed roles. It's time for Total Recall! Back to Article

Agree 100% it's Steve Freakin' Buscemi, and you completely forget it's him as the grieving father, let alone his scene breaks your heart as much as any in the movie. And the writer(s) noted that (as Jeff said a couple comments up) they're including some of Buscemi's minor roles because he can steal a film w a cameo...

I concur with Gabriel. He planted that Tree when his son was born. Other than Woody Harrelsons outstanding performance the Young love blooming through tragedy was really Meh.

Fargo is the best. Reservoir Dogs shouldn't be in the top 10.
