    Brad Pitt's greatest role. Watched this movie a hundred times with my kids, who know the entire script by heart. Pitt should have gotten the Oscar for simply saying 'periwinkel blue'. Kills me every time. Anybody who doubts Pitt's abilities needs to see this movie.

    This is by far the best acting Brad Pitt has ever done. As the story goes, he called Guy Ritchie and told him he wanted any part he had in a movie. Ritchie said he couldn't afford him, and Pitt said he didn't care what they paid him, he just wanted a part. I think he ended up taking $250,000 at a time when his usual pay was somewhere around $20 million.

      It doesn't sound realistic at all... more like a made up story to make Brad looks better than he actually is. I love Brad Pitt as an actor, he is awesome, but we don't live in a world of rainbows and pink elephant either.

    Like many others, no doubt, this changed my view of Brad Pitt in a very positive way.
    It also serves to remind that it's hard to put in a great acting performance, without a great script. Which, in one country, are hard to find among the razzle dazzle and petrol explosions.

    I so looked forward to this movie and remember seeing it at the theater. I didn't like it. :( However, a year or two later I watched it again and LOVED it. This is still in my top 10 movies ever. Sometimes you have to watch a movie a 2nd time to "get it"...for me, the Matrix was the same. I fell asleep the first time, watched it again, and LOVED it.

    It was a great role for Pitt. And I get how the Irish & those familiar with Irish gypsy culture find it so endearing. Especially given how well Pitt pulls off that accent in the film. However, I can personally attest that for southern rednecks, the same thing is true for his role in Kalifornia. Which is why I’ll always opine that’s his best performance. It’s certainly his most underrated & overlooked.

      It’s not complicated it just means someone who sounds like they’re from America
      Just like a British accent sounds like someone from that part of the world

    Snatch (2000) Directed by Guy Ritchie is definitely one of those films that defined the era. Great film. If you enjoyed this clip you should also check out Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) by Guy Ritchie and also Heat (1995) directed by Micheal Mann starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Val Kilmer which was considered the gold standard for films like this just 5 years before.

    I mean it's definitely one of his top characters but I'm not sure about Best... He is unforgettable as a hillbilly psychopath in Kalifornia and absolutely slayed the comedy in Bullet Train... But I think a lot of people forgot about Kalifornia because it is such an old movie at this point... When that movie came out it was absolutely jarring to see Pitt in the role and just absolutely owning it... Early Grace might be Brads Best role...

    Living in Ireland pretty much all of my life and working within the construction sales area for some years I dealt with certain types of Irish Travellers that had very similar mannerisms & accents and a certain business deal ethic that could confuse the fuck out of you. I was blown away by Brads performance when I first saw this movie, I feel even the best of Irish & English actors would struggle to pull this off with such authenticity.

    Benicio del Toro's performance as Fenster in Usual Suspects was Pitt's inspiration for Mickey. Obviously the accents are different, but Pitt was so taken by BDT in Usual Suspects, that he wanted to pattern Mickey's cadence, and general incomprehensibility after Fenster.
    During rehearsal, he asked del Toro's permission to play Mickey's dialogue as he did. Great respect between two masterful actors.

But I could pause, rewind, replay, and still - nope - didn't understand a word of it LOL. Such a brilliant example of his acting perfection. His cheeky shrugging grin after the knock-out in the ring! So brief, so perfect.

      ​@dan32113 ​​it's a window on a world where certain people do call Travellers Pikeys. Some Travellers (while being unhappy about it) have learned to ignore or accept that, but it should not be ignored or accepted; I applaud you for your conscious comment & I for one would never call a Traveller a Pikey - to their face, or behind their back. I feel that Dr D's comment might have been slightly less offensive to you if he had encased the word, in the context of Brad's role, in inverted commas. Of course, it would not have been offensive at all if he had simply used the term Traveller. But herein lies the rub; the role is scripted & widely credited in media as "Mickey O'Neill - The Pikey". The more sensitive of them report on the character "One Punch" Mickey O'Neill (Brad Pitt), referred to as "Pikey Mickey". In high school I had a marvellous friend, Ange, she had a few older brothers, she educated me well. Her brothers used to come to the school at lunchtime, to ensure she was there. They were referred to incorrectly & offensively as gorgers, in the context of them being house-dwellers; her family wanted more for her & who could blame them, she was really smart. The only thing correct about that label is that they were indeed not Romani, they were Irish Travellers. She smashed a great many stereotypes & I'll always be grateful for her friendship. A girl that used to love to torment me wouldn't even look in my direction when she saw that me & Ange were knocking about together. Ange did have a terrible habit for spitting though. Walking downhill in a strong wind to the chip shop one afternoon, a great gob ended up in my eyes. She was laughing so hard she was doubled over, backed off the pavement & as I scooped her saliva from my sockets, she nearly got run over! Disgusting as it was & potentially dangerous as it proved that day, it didn't stop her. She was who she was, I loved & accepted her. I moved away after having to stop doing my A-Levels, we lost touch. I can only hope that every time I'm thinking of her, she's thinking of me too. I love you Ange, I shall never forget you! In a similar way we shall never forget Brad's role, in fact, I would love to see her again, for so many reasons, but one of the first things I'd ask her is, what did she think of Mickey? It's entirely possible she would say that he reminded her of someone.

      @Tabula Rasa thanks for reminding me, indeed a classic, a wicked twist at the end. Dead Man's Shoes embodies that draw of how unbridled violence in the name of revenge can be so absurd it's hilarious, deftly earning the label of "darkly-comic gory thriller". Can't believe Revolver passed me by, Jason along with a great cast, thanks for that too, I look forward to watching it. Jason Statham for me is one of the best things to come out of this wee set of islands in a rather cold sea. I wonder if he & Brad made friends on set/ kept in touch after Snatch? Blitz is ace, Jason is superb, as per, but Aiden Gillen's mastery in his role as a most detestable, bordering on wholly grotesque character I feel is award-worthy, yet, not a nod, no cigar. Hands down Guy Ritchie is a pair of safe hands if you want some road-rash; true, British, drag-you-by-your-feet-along-the-road-at-speed kinda deal! :0)

    Brad Pitt Is what made this movie. The idea that he has such a strong pikey accent that even British people don’t understand him. Is the key to his character but the real parts where it shines through is how he’s supposed to be such a good fighter not from training but simply by surviving. The scene where they set his mothers caravan on fire is one of the heaviest scenes in cinema history.

      @failgg The 'pedestrian' thing actually refers to a class of performance on its own - wherein the exact intention of the artist is to create as grounded and ordinary a depiction of reality as possible - excluding adornment and edifice.
      Many big actors in Hollywood actually made their name from consistently turning out pedestrian performances in excellent movies. Tom Hanks is known as the 'ultimate everyday man' for a reason. Brad Pitt isn't one of those actors.
      ...which, to me, is what made this role so special.

      @Burn "Gypsies" or Roma people actually originate in the middle east, near what is today the Pakistan-India border. Ethnic Romanians have no relation to Roma people, despite the similar names and the fact that Romania has a very old and very large population of Romani "gypsies." But you can't really conflate the two, given that Roma people suffer pretty severe racism from "white" romanians. I know all of this cause I'm 1/4 gypsy myself, and grew up in romania.

Gypo and pikey are the most common terms I've heard because most common "travellers" don't travel for work anymore like they did during the industrial era. There was actually a pikey camp i use to travel past on my way from castlerea to sligo in the mornings and they always use to burn trash heaps with spare tires all the time. You could see the smoke for miles.

I think he played a better Tyler Durden or Mr Smith tbh and tbh I think he played a better ex UN worker Gerry Lane in WWZ, what I'm saying is that Mickey certainly ain't his best role. I thought he was better in Benjamin Button a film where he pretty much for a huge part played himself 😂

    I think Pitt himself said he loved the whole 'Britishness' of the set up. He loved not being given full Hollywood mobile homes and a staff of servants, felt 'normal' in a way he rarely if ever can feel and he was greatly amused by how he'd be given a cup of tea during breaks rather than being asked what 5 star food he'd like delivered by personal courier.
    That relaxed and appreciated atmosphere seems to come out in his performance.

      In a way, Jakie Chan had to slow down anyway, the body at that age cannot take this kind of abuse for long anymore. Sort of like Stallone (75 years old), except I'm guessing Jakie's body is much more damaged in overall (even if he is a bit younger at 68 now).
