Streep towers above the rest. Her versatility is incredible. And she's no spring chicken but she still looks good. She's one of the few actors whose movies I'll go to even if they don't get great reviews. Of course she hardly ever gets a bad review. I first saw her play opposite another great actor, Dustin Hoffman, in Kramer v. Kramer. Later I saw her first movie The Deer Hunter, and I've seen nearly every Streep movie since.
