It’s Tom Hiddleston birthday today and instead of praising his role as Loki, which was absolutely marvelous, let’s take a look at other fantastic roles and movies he has done so far.
We all crave to see good cinema and acting and in all Tom Hiddleston movies, both of them are present.
Midnight in Paris
Though Tom was not a part of the main cast, his role was a memorable one. The actor donned an American accent to portray the iconic character, F. Scott Fitzgerald, in 1920’s Paris. His acting was charming and refined, but Hiddleston also adds depth to the role by allowing hints of the figure’s darker side to surface.
The Deep Blue Sea
Based on the Terence Rattigan play of the same name, this 2012 British romantic drama stars Hiddleston as a handsome, young, former RAF pilot who engages in an affair with the wife of a judge (played by Rachel Weisz). Weisz earned most of the award-season attention with her performance, but the movie was also a win for Hiddleston, who dug into the chance to play a complex, vain man all too aware of his own flaws.
As Rolling Stone described the film, “Hiddleston is an actor of enormous talent, willing to use his good looks to express a weakness that charm can’t eradicate. His scenes with Weisz are electric.”
Only Lovers Left Alive
Written and directed by Jim Jarmusch, the 2013 vampire flick stars Hiddleston as Adam, an underground musician who — deeply depressed by the direction of human activities — reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover, Eve (played by Tilda Swinton). Their rekindled romance, which has already endured several centuries, is disrupted by the arrival of her uncontrollable younger sister.
The film has earned widely positive reviews, with Hiddleston’s moody and reflective performance getting particularly singled out for praise. But it’s his sparkling chemistry with Swinton that makes Only Lovers Left Alive a must-watch Hiddleston film.
The 2010 British flick, directed by Joanna Hogg, stars Hiddleston as Edward, a man preparing to leave for a year of voluntary service in Africa. His mother and sister decide to gather the family together on a remote island as a farewell trip. But when Edward’s father is delayed, the unspoken forces of absence and loss bring the family’s buried anger and tension to the surface.
The quietly devastating profile of a complicated family has earned critical acclaim (with a 95% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes) and marks another strong performance from Hiddleston, who always excels in subtle, naturalistic roles.
Star in Shorts
The presentation that includes incredible short movies with some of the world’s biggest actors. In “Friend Request Pending”, Judi Dench is a neophyte in the complicated landscape of Internet dating.
Colin Firth is an unusually needy neighbor to Keira Knightley in “Steve.” Lily Tomlin gets lost on her way to a funeral in “Procession”, and Jason Alexander is a screenwriter at the end of his rope in the musical short “Not Your Time.” Also including short movies starring Kenneth Branagh, Julia Stiles, Wes Bentley and more.
Hope you like our list of best Tom Hiddleston performances. We have full faith that he will continue doing such amazing and good movies.
