      One for sure is the Deer Hunter. And there was one where he played the arc angel Gabriel and Viggo Mortenson was the devil I wish I could remember the name because it was, I think it was " The Prophecy ". Great movie. By the way did you know he was in " Annie Hall " ?

    The only movie I liked him in was Hairspray. The only other one I can think of is Batman Returns.

    He plays a sort of wacko scientist in "Blast from the Past", a fairly amusing comedy.  Sissy Spacek plays his wife.  Both performances are priceless.

    He had a brief part in "True Romance", where he was a gangster, interrogating Dennis Hopper, and ended up snuffing him.

    Quite a bit of profanity and racial slurs in that scene, but it was one of the better parts of the movie.

    He always plays a great gangster role.

      True Romance ranks high on my hub about Walken's best movie performances...

    I love Blast From the Past!  However, his best performance has to be the Weapon of Choice video from Fatboy Slim!!!!
