The Vintage Lists The Best Performances since 2010

Look, everyone like lists. I usually prefer to write full reviews or some analysis over the most important of films (i.e. Dead Silence) but when you work a full time job and a part time job, time can be scarce. So on week when you’re working 12 hour days on a toilet paper commercial, you resort to the silly list game you conduct between yourself and your best friend in Tennessee. One of the more ambitious list challenges was scouring for the best performances over the last 6 years regardless of the quality of the actual film.
