    Darlings, Pesci and without a doubt. Pacino played a parody of himself.

    The basics are the ones that get impressed by those loud over the top Mannered performances like Pacino and Zellweger. They don’t understand subtlety and Nuance is much more difficult.

    Thanks for the tip Vic but I can actually decide that for myself.

    Once again, this is extremely pretentious. Subtleties and nuances are possible and often occur in big, showy performances. And just because someone prefers Pacino over Pesci doesn’t mean they’re basic. It’s actually more basic to deny the subtleties of Pacino’s performance while singing the praises of them in Pesci’s, since his entire performance is subtle, and therefore, it’s easier to pick up on his nuances. And if what you said is true, and people who enjoy performances like Pacino’s don’t understand performances like Pesci’s, then how come so many people have expressed love and admiration for both of them in The Irishman?

    Pacino hits a lot of nuances within a loud performance.  Pesci is great, but isn’t necessarily more  nuanced.  He just has a more subdued role.  Pacino’s character called for him to be over the top, and he found nuances within that.  Pesci’s role called for him to be subdued and he found nuances within that.

    Also, it’s a myth that a more subdued role is harder to play.  They’re the easiest.  The hardest are the big, loud roles because it’s harder to find the nuances and can come off as overacting.

    I’ll decide for myself what is “Myth” and what isn’t.

    Pacino, but it was a tough race. He stole the show, while still giving an excellent performance as Jimmy Hoffa. He’s technically the heart of the film, showcasing the problems of gangster-hood while being a set-up for the third act. Pesci embodies the lavishness of gangster life, and does so with a nuance that makes you afraid of him while still enjoying his character.

    Tom Hanks and Amy Adams stan in general.

    I’m sure you can decide for yourself where to shove it too. ❤

    Pesci delivered what I believe to be his least recognizable self. Matter of fact, casual, belying a ruthless murderous core.
