This is tough if you look at which are his best performances, I'd say:
Raging Bull
Taxi Driver
Cape Fear
The Godfather Part 2
Mean Streets

If I were to look at the best films then:
Raging Bull
Goodfellas
Taxi Driver
Godfather Part 2
Heat

If your going to include GF2 (which I should have known would happen considering his performence) then make it a top 6. I can't put GF2 in my box set if it is going to be it the Godfather box now can I? Posted Image

Robert De Niro is the best. Bar none. He always gives a great performance. His best films are (in no particular order):
  • Taxi Driver
  • Raging Bull
  • The Godfather II
  • Heat
  • GoodFellas

Rain, good call going with "Midnight Run".
I have seen Larry David in action, and that man is an animal, and he has to be stopped.

Being a huge fan of De Niro and Scorsese, I HAD to respond to this poll!

1. Taxi Driver
2. Raging Bull
3. Goodfellas
4. Once Upon a Time in America
5. Cape Fear

Honorable mentions go to King of Comedy, Midnight Run, Heat, and Godfather 2. Also, he did a GREAT job of acting in the Untouchables! Unfortunately, his role of Al Capone was relatively small and he did not have nearly enough screen time!
For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.
