ROBERT DENIRO b AUG 17 1943
even though de niro is incapable of doing a sympathetic scene w/a woman, he's still one of our best. he's had a crazy career of great roles, duds, oddball cameos, & occasional overacting. for some reason, i've always preferred the restrained de niro to the crazy fuck de niro. his role in true confessions opposite of duvall is a thing of quiet beauty.
he's 66yo today. i'm looking for his king lear somewhere down the line.
