Top 10 Greatest Movie Anti-Heroes

Recommended Posts

How about Kathy Bates in "Misery" or Joan Crawford in "Mommy Dearest"...

They're the most famous, but they play the antagonists i.e., the whole story is not told from their perspective, nor are we made to sympathise with them. Here are a few movies with bona fide anti-heroines:



I Spit On Your Grave

Ms. 45

La Pianiste

Positive I.D.

They Call Her "One-Eye" (aka "Thriller: A Cruel Picture")

With the exception of La Pianiste, they're all revenge movies, so you're rooting for someone who isn't completely bad.

Thanks, Jugband! Did you watch Arrested Development or are you a fan of naps? I fall under both categories. :grin:

i love love love love love arrested development. i work at a video store that has all 3 seasons and i'd find myself getting too imersed in the show and not doing any work. oh well, there's aways money in the banana stand ;) .

Paul Newman as Cool Hand Luke

Sean Connery as James Bond (particularly in Dr. No) I mean the man kills without compunction and uses up women like Kleenex. But he's the man women want and the man other men want to be.

Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry Callahan
