11. True Romance

True Romance
James Gandolfini was a menacing force of nature in the Quentin Tarantino-written/Tony Scott-directed masterpiece. He struck fear in us, just sitting in the audience!

10. The Mexican

The Mexican
The Mexican isn't the greatest movie in the world, but what makes it unforgettable is the performance of Gandolfini as a gay hitman coming to terms with his sexuality in one of the most riveting scenes in the film. His scenes with Julia Roberts throughout the movie save this flick completely.

9. Zero Dark Thirty

Zero Dark Thirty
Gandolfini's moment in Zero Dark Thirty is short, but it is heavy. His CIA director, who essentially encourages Jessica Chastain to pursue her Bin Laden leads, completely turns this movie towards its thrilling finish.

8. Crimson Tide

Crimson Tide
Another small role, another huge performance in a Tony Scott-directed movie for Gandolfini with his turn in Crimson Tide. You can tell he was hinting at greatness in both his Scott movies.

7. Get Shorty

Get Shorty
Can you imagine anyone else other than James Gandolfini playing Bear in Get Shorty? Hardly! And that's what he is too, a big, hugable bear!

6. Where the Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things Are
What truly makes this film work is Spike Jonze and his wild imagination. But, the subtlety that Gandolfini turns in with his voice acting role as Carol truly makes this movie something extraordinary.
