    What about Victor Sjöström in Wild Strawberries? I know you already have Max in The Seventh Seal up there, but that dream where Sjöström ends up staring at a double of himself is great acting and camerawork.

    Fantastic list! Glad you did a male counterpart because the female one is one of my favorites on here. I hadn't looked down to see if you would include Tony Leung, a personal fave, and the suspense was getting to me... and ta-da, there he was. Alain Delon naturally had to be included as well, that man was gorgeous and his close-ups were always hypnotic. Great call on Breno Mello as well. Caught off guard by Maurice Ronet's, that was an amazing one. The only ones I would've thought to have added were Richard Gere in Days of Heaven, Fassbender in Hunger and any one of the wonderful close-ups from The Thin Red Line. Although that last one has an embarrassment of riches that can fill up a whole list so I get it. *insert comment about when the stunning Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters will be upgraded to blu*

    I so glad you included Belmondo. Bruno Mello is not so bad either.

    So glad to see von Sydow, Leung, and Ronet on here - especially Ronet. I'm always happy to see The Fire Within earn more attention - it's such a brilliant film.

    This list lacks that devastating final close-up of Benoit from Mon oncle Antoine, as seen in the film's cover art.

    That Jean Gabin close-up is great. I've had it before this list was made
