Andrew Garfield is currently the favorite bookie to take home the Golden Globe for Best Performance by a Motion Picture Actor – Musical or Comedy for his work in Lin-Manuel Miranda Clap, clack… Boom!
Throughout his career, the British actor has been nominated for an Academy Award (for Hacksaw Ridge) and three Golden Globe Awards (for that film, Clap, clack… Boom! and Social networks.)
But which of them is considered by critics to be his best films? According to review aggregators Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic, these are the highest-rated movies starring Andrew Garfield.
(And be warned – if you don’t want to know if Garfield will appear in a certain Marvel movie, turn away now…)
Andrew Garfield’s 10 best movies
ten. Ultimate Spiderman
Of the 11 Spider-Man movies to date, Ultimate Spiderman ranked eighth on Rotten Tomatoes, with Garfield seen by many as Peter Parker, who doesn’t get his fair share of vibes with the role. However, his first outing clearly still has some fans.
9. Never let me go
This adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro brought together three of the most exciting British talents of the time (Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Garfield) in a unique clone story. Even against such competition, Garfield still gives the best performance of the movie.
8. Hacksaw Ridge
Mel Gibson’s war film earned Garfield his first Oscar nomination (he lost to Casey Affleck for Manchester By the Sea). Although the film’s reputation has been clouded by the question of whether Hollywood should let Gibson make the film after numerous accusations of anti-Semitism and homophobia, there is no doubt when Garfield shows conscientiously as the conscientious objector of Desmond Doss.
Silent generally went down as an unadvised passion project for Martin Scorsese, cashing out his “white checks” to make The Wolf of Wall Street on a lengthy and reflective film about missionaries in feudal Japan. Garfield’s voice in the film is somewhat questionable, but that hasn’t stopped the majority of critics from enjoying the film.
6. Clap, clack… Boom!
Garfield’s latest Golden Globe nomination comes from this biopic/adaptation of a man’s show To rent creator Jonathan Larson, and he’s a winner for now – even if another project he’s working on in 2021 has the edge on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic.
5. Boy A
Garfield delivers one of the most remarkable performances a young actor has ever given in this 2007 drama about a child murderer trying to rehabilitate himself after his prison term. The project received Garfield’s BAFTA nomination, and casting agents everywhere took notice.
4. The Red Riding trilogy of works
Made for BBC in the United Kingdom, these three adaptations of David Peace’s book “Yorkshire noir” have had theatrical release in the US. Garfield unites the trio as a young reporter investigating a series of schoolgirl murders.
3. Spider-Man: There’s no way home
Sorry spoilers… Garfield reprized his role as Peter Parker in the third installment of the films in Tom Hollland’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. And according to many critics (including one here at Newsweek), the actor performed the best of Spidey’s three performances in many ways as redemption of his original outing in a spiderman suit.
2. 99 houses
For his first movie after his Spider-run, Garfield went back to his more independent roots, making this low-budget film about a man who kicks people out of their homes to save your house. Sadly for the actor, he was overshadowed by Michael Shannon (who received a Golden Globe nomination for the role).
first. Social networks
David Fincher’s Facebook The platform legend is full of young male actors, including Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Armie Hammer (in a dual role) and Max Minghella. But Garfield gives one of the film’s strongest performances as Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin.
