The first time many saw Brad Pitt it was in series like Dallas or 21 Jump Street, but his big moment came when he became J.D in Thelma and Louise, where he was not the protagonist, but was able to prove that he had the look and talent to become one of the great not-so-secret weapons of Hollywood.
30 years after that movie in which he gave life to the charismatic con man, Brad Pitt es a Oscar winner, successful producer and director who has the power to turn everything he touches into gold, or rather is a blockbuster machine with millions of followers around the mute.
And he’s not just “a pretty face,” of course his haircuts and style always give something to talk about, but most importantly, he’s a complex and versatile actor who can move from drama to comedy with the same ease with which he changes his shirt, and go from playing seductive vampires to ira-troubled detectives who put themselves in the trap of the criminals they pursue (as happened with Se7en).
In total, Brad Pitt he has 84 credits as an actor (between series and films) and around 63 as a producer (he is currently preparing to release Blonde, a documentary by Chris Cornell and the adaptation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), and with that he is already a film legend who has a place in the history books alongside giants such as Paul Newman, Steve McQueen or his contemporaries Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Deserve more awards oscar of the ones he has (though that’s another subject), but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s given us some of the best movies ever.
Brad Pitt’s best movies:
Directed by David Fincher this film leaves Pitt and Morgan Freeman caught in a macabre game of cat and mouse, where they become two detectives who are trying to stop a serial killer who kills his victims using the 7 deadly sins. Se7en has one of the best twists in the history of cinema and an ending that ends up closing a circle that, for many, would have been very different if Pitt’s character had controlled their emotions.
Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Quentin Tarantino directs this crazy story that unfolds in the World War II. The film takes us to a France occupied by the Nazis, where a group of rebel soldiers organize a plan to assassinate the leaders of the party, which ends up clashing with that of the Jewish soldiers who have their own agenda to fulfill.
Fight Club (1999)
David Fincher it’s behind this cult movie that begins with an unnamed man who is frustrated with his life and work, and who runs into a mysterious man, named Tyler Durden, which leads him to form a secret fight club with a very dangerous philosophy and plan. As Tyler gets out of control, tensions increase and the protagonist realizes that things aren’t exactly what they seem, and that his partner isn’t who he claims to be. Fight Club is a movie that you must see without knowing anything, so in case you haven’t seen it, we’re not going to tell you about it.
12 Monkeys (1995)
