Five Films That Helped Inspire Benicio Del Toro’s Acting Career

Published

on

For 30 years, actor Benicio del Toro has earned praise for his work in Traffic, 21 Grams, and Sicario. While perfecting his acting chops, he kept his eyes glued to the silver screen. In his eyes, these are the cream of the crop. Here are five films that managed to stick with him throughout his career.

Lucía

The Movie DB

Shot all over Cuba in black and white, Lucía goes through the country’s vast history in three separate parts. At the 6th Moscow International Film Festival, the flick earned the coveted Golden Prize award. Nearly 50 years after its release, the film received digital restoration from the Cineteca di Bologna.

Creature From The Black Lagoon

IMDB

Creature From The Black Lagoon wasn’t as popular as Frankenstein or Dracula, but it still became a timeless classic. Released in 1954, the film became a success in the fading 3-D film market. The movie introduced the world to Gill-man, who has made appearances in numerous films and TV shows.

The Last Detail

IMDB

This film, a Benicio del Toro favorite, was at the time the most profane movie released in theaters. Released in 1973 and starring Jack Nicholson, The Last Detail saw several filming setbacks, including director Hal Ashby being arrested for marijuana possession. Arguments about the high swearing count pushed the movie back even further. This was Randy Quaid’s breakout film, with Oscar and Golden Globe nominations in his name.

The Harder They Come

IMDB

As the first feature film to arrive from Jamaica, The Harder They Come managed to leave a lasting impression. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer Jimmy Cliff stars as struggling singer Ivan, who can’t escape the police. The film’s soundtrack, which features The Slickers and The Melodians, helped introduce the world to reggae music.

The 400 Blows

IMDB

1959’s The 400 Blows is arguably the most influential film to arrive from France. Directed and written by François Truffaut, the film follows a rebellious kid through struggles with his parents and school life. On Rotten Tomatoes, it joins an elite group of films with a perfect 100% rating.
