    There's a direct correlation between how seriously an actor takes acting and how good their performances actually are. Daniel Day Lewis is criminally overrated, especially in light of how self-important his "method" is.

      It's a meme that he didn't "bother" about learning lines. He was very serious about the characters he played, he simply chose to understand the character instead of just regurgitating lines. Just because he played pranks on the crew during shoots doesn't mean he wasn't serious about his craft. Just listen to Coppola describing how he literally built the Don Corleone out of a conversation.

          That's not a compromise out of laziness. That's a deliberate choice on his part.

              there was a method behind his idea of reading cards instead of memorizing lines. I remember reading about his work in The Godfather and how he used the cards, wasn't because of a tantrum or lazyness. He really understood that people in real life often think before talking, and something struggle with understanding or hearing the words of the other person in the room. That's why he used the cards, to reflect on what his character was supposed to say. The same reason why he put cotton in his ears, to force himself to hear what the other actors said

              It's not though. It was part of the process of making his dialog appear more spontaneous and less rehearsed. Please try researching his method instead of getting all your info from Reddit

        He was one of the early practitioners of "the method" (aka: Method Acting); where you focus on the character and being in the moment.

        On a related side note; then-little-known actor Burt Reynolds did an imitation of brando (and method actors) in an episode of the Twilight Zone:

      Daniel Day Lewis is great doing accents, voice transformation and body transformation (when it comes to posture and movement I mean, any actor can put weight or loose weight). And that takes skill, but you don't kneed method acting for that

        He really isn't. Overacting is usually much more noticeable / off-putting than performances where the actor clearly doesn't care and DDL consistently overacts in every project.

          it works in some movies, in There will be Blood his character is almost a parody of himself, in the way he talks and moves. It works with such a greedy and awful man, who slowly degrades himself into a even worse version of himself

      He's literally one of the best actors of all time, with universal acclaim, multiple academy awards, guild awards, baftas and golden globes and even a knighthood. He's admired by all his peers and by top directors, and his movies have earned hundreds of millions of dollars, so yeah.. how exactly is he overrated? His performances in films like 'Gangs of New York' and 'There Will Be Blood' are some of the most memorable performances of all time. So yeah.. you're talking out of your ass.

        That's such a moronic fallacy. Most people don't appreciate subtlety, that doesn't make them right.

          DDL is subtle when he needs to be. That anon isn't wrong, he's pretty much a master class on acting.

    The anime idea that grinding will make you good doesn't really apply to art all the time. You can improve, but it seems like a lot of talent is pretty innate. I doubt that Kubrick or Tarkovsky spent 10,000 hours practicing before they became good

    part of genius became from his self destructive personality, which worsened when he became older. I don't blame, since he was supposedly molested by his mother and I think his nanny also. Don't remember which actress and former lover said about him that he recented women with dominant personalities and took pleasure in humilliating them, and he was pretty much an abusive partner to all his lovers, he bragged about how he had James Dean in a tight leash, and how Dean was madly in love with him

    >any idiot can do it
    I'm an actor/director. I've worked with idiots during my scholarship. I agree acting is easy, but o, idiots CANNOT act. I once had to redo a 3 second shot for 45 minutes because the idiot would no-sell his death. I even fricking filmed the actual scene myself to show him how to do it and he couldn't fricking do it. All he had to do was collapse on the floor and play dead, but the fricking second he was slightly horizontal, he would get up, I didn't even fricking say Cut! I had to VFX his eyes closing because the best shot we had, he had his eyes wide open.
    And kids (and the parents) are the fricking worst.

        He wasn't doing it out of malice though, he had no rhythm and couldn't channel anything. Struggled remembering his lines despite reading them. He was in the drama elective class because the art class was already full, and because he was in a sports program, he couldn't have PE electives. Cool, stand-up guy, but he can't act for shit.
