John Cusack has been in the film industry for the past 25 years, having made over 50 in his long and storied career. Of these, he says that he's only made 10 good ones, and notes Being John Malkovich and Grosse Point Blank among them. That leaves only eight other films that he considers having been good. We'd like to differ, and can name, off the top of our heads, at least another 10 films that John Cusack is in that we think are pretty damn good.
How about Say Anything? High Fidelity? These are pretty much classics of the Cusackian oevre. Not to mention that the man was in Sixteen Candles and Bob Roberts. Wow, we're at six, and we haven't even had to dig yet. Better Off Dead and The Sure Thing must absolutely be there, and then there's Bullets Over Broadway and Shadows and Fog for Woody Allen, and Cradle Will Rock, which absolutely kicks ass.
That's 11 right there, and we haven't even gotten into the disputable films, like The Road to Wellville, The Grifters, and City Hall. As a matter of fact, there's some pretty good evidence that John Cusack might be the best actor of my generation.
He might be a great actor, but he certainly can't count.
