The filmmaker Jonathan Demme, who sadly died just a few weeks ago, was known as an "actor's director," in part because of the many brilliant performances he elicited from actors in his films. He directed nine Oscar-nominated performances in his career, including three of the most acclaimed Oscar-winning performances in cinematic history. Which of these three performances do you think was best?

Thank you! My vote goes to Jodie Foster's Clarice, as well. All three performances were virtuoso but both Foster's portrayal and the character of Starling are my favorites.

Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs?  If I constructed a Top 5 best performances of all time?  She has to be on that list.
