Inglourious Basterds or Django Unchained?
What do you think was his better performance and/or character?
In both, he worked with Tarantino.
In both, he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar.
In Django, he's a good guy.
In Inglourious, he's a bad guy.
In both, he's really witty, yet his character always has a bad ending (has a symbol carved into his forehead by Aldo and killed by Butch)
In both, he has rivalries with probably two of the biggest lead actors in the world (Pitt and DiCaprio)
Both of these films/performances have lifted him to the James Bond villain status that he is today.
I'd say Inglourious had the better character, simply because every scene he would start with a friendly approach which- thanks to great writing, turned steadily into witty and deceptive.
In terms of better performance, I'd say Django. It seemed more polished and experienced, and his character had to be much more relaxed yet smart to simmer tensions between the rednecks and Django, allowing IMO a more improvised performance.
Time is a flat circle
