No actress in the last decade or so, can boast of working with such an enviable list of great directors as Naomi Watts. From the illusory craziness of David Lynch’s world and the enormity of Peter Jackson’s out-worldliness to the utter humanity disdain-fullness of Michael Haneke’s, Watts has seen it all. Add to those three names, true film-making greats like Clint Eastwood, David Cronenberg, Woody Allen, David O Russell, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Gore Verbenski, Gus Van Sant, Jean-Marc Vallée, Noah Baumbach and you are talking about a list that every actor in this world would be jealous of. As a result of which we have several really good Naomi Watts movies to choose from for this list.
With a poignantly expressive face, deep blue eyes and a subtle classy demeanor, Naomi Watts exudes an old worldly charm, but it’s her ingrained versatility and penchant for playing complicated woman undergoing transformative changes that will allow Naomi Watts to go down in history books as one of the greatest actresses of her generation. With that in mind, I am presenting to you the list of top Naomi Watts movies.
10. Mother and Child (2010)
One of the most underrated films and performances of Naomi Watts. She plays a tough woman who places success over everything else. Despite several big names in the film, without doubt, it is Naomi who gives the best performance out of all in the cast. Must watch!
9. The Ring (2002)
