5. Sean Connery
2012 Rank: #28
Lately I’ve been geeking out over this British film magazine called Little White Lies. For their fiftieth issue, which came out in I think December, they asked fifty different people to each discuss one movie from the past fifty years. The resulting list is a combination of my personal favorite movies (Blow-Up! Underground! Clue! Gremlins 2!) and movies I’d never actually heard of before (Wanda! Mr. Klein! The Death of Mr. Lazurescu!) Anyway, it all starts off with a reflection on Marnie, one of Hitchcock’s weirdest movies—it’s probably the weirdest of all, now that I say that—and one in which Sean Connery is very, very handsome. And possibly evil. Or maybe not.
