    Why no “Days Of Heaven”? Classic 70’s film, directed by Malick, and many would say it’s one of his best performances.

    Beautiful film, but I went for peformance-based films and skipped Malick’s heavily stylized film. If I asked for Best Richard Gere film, I definitely would have included it.

    I certainly prefer his performance with Malick than “Shall We Dance”.

    Imo Gere’s ‘best’ perf is in Days of Heaven. But I’ve enjoyed him in almost everything, except for his David movie, where he is forced to dance up and down some stone steps in a diaper.

    I think Gere is one of those under appreciated actors. From the above, it’s between three or four.  I’ll go with The Hoax, but tomorrow, I could go with Shall We Dance.

    We appear to have different ideas of what heavily stylized means. For me, it’s films like Moulin Rouge and Natural Born Killers. Some of Tarantino’s films qualify as well.
    There is nothing stylized about Days of Heaven imo.

    1. Have not seen Internal Affairs. Have not heard anyone else I know talk about it. Therefore, it did not and could not and should not make the list.

    2. Days of Heaven was a great movie. But I was more impressed by the music and the cinematography and maybe even Linda Manz’s voice-over than I was by Gere in the film.

    I get it, but few people in the world would be more impressed by “Shall We Dance” than his work on “Days Of heaven”. he’s actually really goos in it, and it would probably be my choice too. That’s why leaving it out has the impression of intentionally avoiding the film.

    And Malick’s films always have great performances, so I don’t understand how it’s all about style with him.

    I too would have chosen Internal Affairs, a deliciously charming & evil performance. It was however hurt by a January release date and then was overshadowed by the release of Gere’s Pretty Woman just 2 months later. Instead I went with Billy Flynn. It was a movie star charming type of performance, with a devilish streak.

    I enjoyed the cast but overall, Internal Affairs made me laugh out loud in parts, and it’s not a comedy.

    I enjoyed Primal Fear, Chicago, Pretty Woman, Days of Heaven, and An Officer and a Gentleman. Gere was good in each ensemble. However, I think it was his brief role in Looking For Mr. Goodbar where he seemed to transcend the material. Outstanding, memorable screen presence.
