Considering how previous collective FS lists have gone, it's great to see the females ranking highly.  I had a feeling the list was going to be very white.  Guess many aren't comfortable with evaluating non-English language performances.  Personally, don't think it's that complicated an issue when it comes to performances in a foreign language.

For those who had Ledger's Joker on their list, pick one adjective to describe his performance.  Caveat: don't use evaluative adjective like great, fantastic, amazing, incredible, or anything along those lines, but use ones that describe your experience (reaction-/emotional-wise, etc.) such as frightening, creepy, etc.

Tom Cruise at #7? Really?  A swing a miss by the collective Filmspotter.

Ledger's Joker was genuinely unpredictable.

Tom Cruise at #7 was a surprise, as was the #1.

It's my own fault that Christian Bale in American Psycho is not on the list. I didn't submit a list, but that performance is so clearly my #1, it's a shock to see it not on the list.

Otherwise, I really love it. Glad to see Norman Bates and Scottie Ferguson on there.

Didn't see Diane Keaton on the list for Annie Hall or Looking for Mr. Goodbar.  Did I miss it?

(obligatory complaint about #79)

I didn't submit a list,

I feel like this is going to be a common trend. ;D
