On Friday, a new Michael Fassbender film comes to Netflix when The Killer hits streaming after a limited theatrical run. Later on this month, you can also see him in another high profile movie when Next Goal Wins debuts in theaters. You can see what I think of him in David Fincher‘s film here, as well as Taika Waititi‘s movie here, but the double dose of Fassbender has me thinking about his work to date. So, a mid-week Awards Radar Community Question was born. What is your favorite performance of his so far?
Fassbender first caught my attention in Hunger, followed up Fish Tank and especially Shame, which I think remains his crowning achievement. You could be partial to his work in 12 Years a Slave, Steve Jobs, or any number of other options. Hell, your pick could be Alien: Covenant and/or Prometheus. There’s no wrong answers here!
Here are my picks for Fassbender’s ten best performances:
Honorable Mention: A Dangerous Method, Macbeth, and Prometheus
10. The Light Between Oceans
9. Next Goal Wins
7. The Killer
6. 12 Years a Slave
5. Fish Tank
4. Inglourious Basterds
2. Steve Jobs
The choice is now yours. Which Michael Fassbender turn is your favorite? Are you waiting for one of his newest flicks before you make your final selection? Whatever the case may be, we’re curious to find out. So, chime in now…
