  1. Great pick of an actor to focus on Mark. Spoilt for choice with Gary Oldman. I would also have to include The Darkest Hour and Bram Stoker’s Dracula in his Top 10. Here’s some different choices for the other 8:
    Mank (2020)- the story of the writing of Citizen Kane.
    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)
    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) Takes the role of Smiley immortalised by Alec Guiness and brings something else to it
    True Romance (1993) Another completely different kind of role
    Romeo Is Bleeding (1993) Plays a cop on the take from the Mafia
    J. F. K. (1991) plays Lee Harvey Oswald arrested for killing JFK
    Prick Up Your Ears (1987) True story of the playwright Joe Orton
    Sid and Nancy (1986) Plays Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols

    It’s incredible how he has done so brilliantly in so many diverse roles.
