I would suggest to say besides Henry Hill because it's the character he's most associated with (before Shoeless Joe Jackson) and it's very likely that that option will win the poll...

... not that it matters, the homage is what count. Can"t believe he died, 67 years old, can you believe it?! Not only it's still young by today's standards but think of all the great things a man like Clint Eastwood achieved after he was 67... so sad that a career was cut so short!

@ElMaruecan82​ I don't think it's appropriate for this kind of poll to leave out his most famous character

I just read your review of Au hasard Balthazar (1966). You haven't posted on the forum in about a month, but I couldn't let you in the false idea that Robert Bresson is part of the French New Wave. He was appreciated by the French New Wave directors, but he was his own thing. Like Jean-Pierre Melville his career debuted before the advent of Truffaut and Godard, and ended after. There is nothing like him, do not think that his philosophy represents the whole of the French New Wave, it is misguided.

The French New Wave started approximately in 1958/1959 and ended approximately in 1962. Anyway, after the downfall of The French New Wave (after a series of critical failure), from the directors who remained afloat (Truffaut, Rohmer, Chabrol, etc.) only Godard remained as radical he probably did "French New Wavish" films until the late 1960s, the rest of the directors took advantage of their earlier success to make more commercial films.

PS: I also think that you are unfair with Bresson. You are evaluating him based on criteria induced by you appreciations of American films (conventional narrative, method acting). Those You didn't connect with his films, but it doesn't mean he was unsuccessful at doing what he was doing. I, for one, adore his films.
