Agreed. Norton got BSA for Primal Fear. Norton > Spacey.

Norton may not always pick the best movies but it seems like he always shines. Even in Death to Smoochy, which I did not like, Norton was still a blast to watch. He picks such varied roles. He's kind of like DiCaprio in that he totally reinvents himself in every movie he does.

EDIT: New movie off his IMDB page. Lol Sounds like a blast.

Motherless Brooklyn - a detective with Tourette's Syndrome. When his mentor is murdered, he must go and find the killer.

That sounds awesome..

Norton is just a great actor all the time. He was great in Score playing the retarded guy.

American History X is incredible and Fight Club also amazing.

Norton was awesome in Primal Fear and if we're rating based on their acting I would give him the nod. I think the Spacey's villain in Seven was better though overall...

...and I'll take Verbal Kint over both of them.

You gotta compare Norton/Primal Fear to Spacey/Usual Suspects. I'll take Spacey in that instance but overall, Norton is one of my favs.

smoochy is solid, but definitely not for everyone's tastes.

Not overall. As a complete movie I didn't think it was very good. But I liked some aspects, like Norton, and I agree with you that it has some great scenes.

25th Hour was also a great film with Norton and he was excellent.

I agree. I also liked 25th Hour. ;-D

Although I haven't watched Frida, and I heard it is suppoed to be a good movie, all his films IMO after Fight Club, with the exception of 25th Hour, were kinda meh. :-/
