10. Knight of Cups (2015)

A Terrence Malick film that is not for everyone, not different from most of his recent efforts. What stand out is the film — apart from cinematography of course, is Cristian Bale’s subtle and committed performance. Clearly, he seems to be acting without a script and yet he completely allows himself to be Rick, a Hollywood actor searching for true love.


9. Out of the Furnace (2013)

The film revolves around Russel, magnificently played by Christian Bale, who has to take matter into his own hands when his younger brother Rodney Baze (Casey Affleck) mysteriously disappears and law enforcement doesn’t follow through fast enough. A gritty film that is elevated by Bale’s performance.


8. 3:10 to Yuma (2007)

3:10 to Yuma is about a drought-impoverished rancher (Christian Bale) who takes on the dangerous job of taking a notorious outlaw (Russel Crowe) to justice. The film is a remake of the 1957 film of the same name. While the film is mediocre, the performances are great all around, especially from Christian Bale.


7. The Big Short (2015)

Christian Bale Big Short

In this Wall Street based flick, Bale easily looked the awkward lonely math genius. He plays confused and downright quirky with just right amount of edge to make the character believable. He makes the audience believe that he is suffering from Asperger syndrome and an artificial left eye. He is totally deserving of all the accolades he is inevitably receiving and that includes Academy award nomination for Best Supporting Actor role.


6. American Hustle (2013)


Between unstable housewife, a partner he adores and a hot-headed FBI agent, he delivers an incredible range of acting skills. He made the character completely his own and audience develops a hate/love relationship with him. He gained 40 lbs and is almost unrecognizable. He is captivating in every single scene and audience remains enchanted by his convincing character portrayal.
