Its difficult because the new Hollywood generation was making a lot more good movies in my opinion. Even the actors that reserve themselves for the most interesting roles these days (DiCaprio, Lewis, Bale, Pitt, PSH) arent batting at the same average that the guys in the 70s did. A lot of my all time favorite performances and movies come from those 4 guys in the 1970-82 era.

You make a good case for Pitt, 1SO. I did initially dismiss him.

Penn, yeah. I can't really argue against it.

While I cant say he's been in too many movies Ive loved, Clooney always brings it and makes interesting choices. He's basically Soderbergh's guy, he's worked multiple times with the Coen Bros.

Not trying to argue against Clooney or anything I'm just thinking, has he ever done big emotion? Like lose all control wailing, or total rage... that sort of thing.

What about Meryl Streep?  Or are we only discussing men?

We're looking at the last 20 years. Streep is from the Pacino DeNiro era. But who would you say is a modern equal to Meryl Streep? (You could argue there is no equal to Streep at any time in film history, but who in the last 20 years comes closest?)

Perhaps Winslet? I've only seen her in a few films, but she's always really good.

For men, I'd agree with PS Hoffman and Penn.  For women, I'd argue that Streep hasn't tapped out like DeNiro and others.  I keep forgetting that Sophie's Choice wasn't her first film.  (Which still isn't the last 20 years, but Doubt was.)

Winslet comes really close, but not to the same level as the older generation, I'd say.
