10. Kingdom of Heaven (2005)
When the director has a running feud with the studio, the movie faces the brunt. And that’s what happened with ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ when it first released. But Ridley Scott came out with an extended director’s cut, later in the year which was a beautifully made film and duly got all critical acclaim. And Edward Norton plays a big part for that acclaim, for his minor act. Playing king Baldwin, who is a leper and thus to hide the scars, he wore a silver mask which only revealed his eyes. It added to the mystery surrounding the character which played off pretty well. It’s said, in order to enhance the role, he even wanted to go un-credited ! Now that’s what we call dedication.
