Cusack says a quarter of his films are good
John Cusack has said that he's only made ten good films, or rather there's not forty that are great. His comment apparently includes Grosse Pointe Blank and Being John Malkovich in those ten.
John Cusack's career spans fifty-five films according to IMDB, so I'm surprised that he feels there are only ten good ones in there, or perhaps he means great. I'm going to try and take a look at them.
"I've made 10 good films. The ones that suck I tend to blank out. It's like I never even made them. Well, there aren't 40 that are great, put it that way. But that's fine. Ten is a good battling average."
That's the quote from WENN through Starpulse News Blog, which sounds more like a prepare for retirement comment than anything else. However are there only ten in there? I'm going to go through and write down the ones I like.
The Sure Thing, Broadcast News, Eight Men Out, Say Anything, The Grifters, Grosse Pointe Blank, Con Air, Being John Malkovich, - okay I'm starting to think he's right - High Fidelity, Identity (maybe),...Yeah, perhaps he is.
Okay there might be a few to come out of the as yet unreleased and in production films, but so far I'm at a personal list of ten. What do you come away with? Are there really only ten? I guess I was looking at great, if we really were to say good then I could add three or four more to that list.
