My favorite films featuring actor-comedian-bon vivant Kevin Pollak. NOTE: These are not necessarily ranked by Pollak's best PERFORMANCES in the films (a good secondary list), but just the overall top films.

The Usual Suspects


Everyone knows the "twist" by now, but Bryan Singer and writer Christopher McQuarrie's debut still packs just as much a punch as ever, boasting some of the best "tough guy" dialogue in memory and an all-star cast of heavy hitters (from Pollak to Gabriel Byrne to Benicio del Toro to the late great Pete Posthlewaite to Oscar-winner Kevin Spacey.)

Not just the best film on Mr. Pollak's filmography, but one of the best films of the '90s, generally. Scorsese's look inside the history of Vegas gives us two great stories at once: the practical view of how organized crime's rise and fall in Nevada, and another gripping story of one man being undone by his pride and jealousy. Pollak's great too in a few scenes, particularly when he's viewing Sam "Ace" Rothstein's cheesy "talk show" in disbelief.

Ricochet


This is one of those "so bad it's AWESOME" selections on Denzel Washington's resume. Vengeful criminal John Lithgow comes after Denzel, a DA who was also the cop who long-ago put him away. Pollak plays Washington's old partner, who meets an unfortunate end.

A Few Good Men


Oh, Lieutenant Weinberg...Pollak, Tom Cruise and Demi Moore face off against prosecutor Kevin Bacon, Colonel Jack Nicholson and basically the entire US Marine Corps in this legal drama from director Rob Reiner and recent Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin. Pollak really gets to show some of his dramatic chops in this one.
