The Most Memorable Daniel Day Lewis Roles So Far

One of the most talented, yet mysterious actors out there is, in my opinion, Daniel Day Lewis. It seems that any time he stars in a movie, he gets an Academy Award nomination. At the same time, however, it seems like he doesn't like to act in films too often.

This article will chronicle the best Daniel Day Lewis movies and roles throughout his accomplished career.

Of course, one movie that must be mentioned on a list of Daniel Day Lewis films is My Left Foot. Lewis stars plays the role of a person with cerebral palsy who learns to write and paint using the only movable part of his body, his left foot.

When it comes to epic films starring Daniel Day Lewis, it is hard to get a film better than The Last Of The Mohicans. There are few movies about the French and Indian War, and maybe that is because Michael Mann and crew set the bar so high with this 1992 war epic.

Another great Daniel Day Lewis film is Gangs Of New York, in which his role of Bill The Butcher nabbed him an Academy Award Nomination for Best Actor In a Supporting Role. This film was released in 2002 and was also nominated for best picture of the year.

When all is said and done, it was Lewis' most recent Oscar win that was his most impressive: the role of the tyrannical oilman Daniel Plainview. If this movie was a work of fiction, Lewis would have you convinced otherwise. This movie played like a biopic.

One other great Daniel Day Lewis film that I feel the need to mention is The Boxer. This movie may not have received the accolades that his other movies did, but it is an amazing film and role nonetheless.

I have no doubt that any future roles that Daniel Day Lewis chooses to pursue will be worthy of mentioning in subsequent articles. When that will be, however, only Lewis knows.
