Owner of an unrecoverable trajectory in the seventh art, actor Sean Penn, born on August 17, 1960, has dozens of incredible films in his curriculum. His characters vary in the most diverse forms and genres, never being restricted to a type of characterization. Here, we try to bring a little of the filmography of this film legend, listing ten emblematic films of his career. Let’s go to the list!
10º – Casualties of War (Brian De Palma, 1989)The plot will tell the story of a platoon from the United States, in the Vietnam war, who, despite the contrary insistence of some individuals, decides to go to an enemy village and kidnap a woman from the place. The following barbarities and the useless efforts of a soldier after this will limit the consequences of the film.
9º – We’re No Angels (Neil Jordan, 1989)After escaping from prison, two criminals find the only solution to escape from the police life in a church, pretending to be two priests. Now, they will both experience the most diverse confusions. A regular comedy that uses a more cadenced rhythm, ‘We’re No Angels’ stands out for the duo that commands the main characters, with the excellent presence of Robert De Niro and Sean Penn.
8º – The Thin Red Line (Terrence Malick, 1998)Terrence Malick creates here a sensitive film, sometimes poetic, about the human and psychological conflicts found in a war. Unlike any other film in the genre, Malick also explores the natural effects of the event. We have nature as something alive, pulsating, during the almost three hours of film: ‘The Thin Red Line’ may not be the best film ever made about wars, but it is, without a doubt, the most visceral film in the genre.
