The actor who turns 55 today has worked with many of today’s top directors, as evidenced by the five streaming films selected to pay tribute to him.
Today we wish a happy birthday – 55 candles blown out – to the now ex-James Bond Daniel Craig, the one who gave the 007 franchise huge successes with the public and in a couple of cases also with critics. But relegating Craig only in the elegant clothes of the secret agent would be extremely simplistic, as the next five demonstrate streaming movies and the directors with whom he has collaborated up to now. So here are the best of Daniel Craig’s filmography, we have excluded from the five Skyfall but it is still a very successful film. Enjoy the reading.
Five streaming movies starring Daniel Craig
- He was my father
- Casino Royale
- Millennium – Men who hate women
- The Logan scam
He Was My Father (2002)
The meeting with Sam Mendeswho will then direct him in Skyfall and Spectersees a Craig engine of the story and supervillain son of the criminal boss Paul Newman. A capital test for a beautiful and underrated film. Tom Hanks leads He was my father within an autumnal and symbolic universe, with at least a couple of cinematic history sequences. Oscar for photography, also in the cast Jude Law. Based on a Graphic Novel. To be reviewed every time. Available on KILOS, Google Play, Apple iTunes, Amazon Prime Videos, NOW, Disney+.
Steven Spielberg wants Craig next to the protagonist Eric Bana in his perhaps most pessimistic film, certainly the most livid on a psychological level. But the staging of Munich is an impressive work of art, a descent into limbo in which the protagonist spies move to get revenge. Magnificent and terrifying feature film. Oscar nominations for film, direction and screenplay. A Spielberg of the best ever, without hesitation. Available on Rakuten TVCHILI, Google Play, Apple Itunes, Amazon Prime Video, NOW, Paramount+.
Casino Royale (2006)
The entry into the James Bond universe could not have happened in a better way. The sequence that opens Casino Royale it is frenetic and spectacular cinema, the rest of the film a melodrama of rare effectiveness that sees excellent reinforcements Eve Green and a malefic Mads Mikkelsen. Martin Campbell builds an adrenaline-pumping film and elegantly staged, and the audience responds in a big way. And the success is deserved. One of the best of the entire saga, certainly in the Top 5. Available on Rakuten TV, CHILI, Google Play, Amazon Prime Video.
Millennium – Men with the Hatred on Women (2012)
Another completely different thriller for Craig: the American version of Millennium – Men who hate women directed by David Fincher it is a concentrate of great staging – you make very good use of the settings – for a morbid and excellently written story. Rooney Mara in the role of Lisbeth Salander is an Oscar nomination, the film works really well and leaves the audience with a surprising rottenness for this type of mainstream product. We highly recommend it. Available on Rakuten TV, CHILI, Google Play, Amazon Prime Video.
The Logans Scam (2017)
The inspired and histrionic participation in the heist-movie directed by Steven Soderbergh ensures Craig can express his versatility. Remarkable performance that matches those of Channing Tatum, Adam Driver And Riley Keough. The Logan scam is one of the author’s best films in years, a comedy full of good moments, good performances and a smart ending. A tasty film for luxury escape and entertainment. Hilarious. Available on Rakuten TV, CHILI, Google Play, Apple Itunes, Amazon Prime Video, NOW.
