10. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
‘Silver Linings Playbook’ was Robert De Niro’s come back role after years of starring in a number of insipid movies we wish the actor was never really part of. His performance in David O. Russel’s heartwarming romantic comedy as a superstitious Philadelphia Eagles fan who tries to mend his broken relationship with his son (Played by Bradley Cooper) who suffers from bipolar disorder is hilarious and touching at the same time. The scene in which he breaks down and opens up about his feelings in front of Bradley Cooper shows us why he is still a master of his craft.
