Happy birthday, Willem Dafoe! Enjoy these renowned films.

To honour the frightening, intense, careful, and brilliant work of the birthday boy on his special day, we've chosen our favourite films starring Willem Dafoe.
The Lighthouse is extremely deliberate and contains visual beauty that can only be obtained through conventional methods and by forgoing digital photography in favour of genuine black-and-white filmstock.
The plot is full with subtext, but it's impossible to overlook the fact that Robert Pattinson & Willem Dafoe's two (and only two!) passionate performances carry the entire movie.
American Psycho, which came out in 2000, has a legendary reputation that only grows more poignant with time.
Although Christian Bale's career may have taken off after American Psycho, he is merely one of a select group of legendary actors who helped the cult film become what it is today.
Wild at Heart
The 1990 feature film Wild at Heart by David Lynch is arguably one of his best and one of his most approachable.
Last but not least, it's significant to highlight how well Willem Dafoe performs in little movie roles.
The Fly from 1986 and Videodrome from 1983 are two of director David Cronenberg's better recognised works, but 1999's Existenz is one of his most underappreciated masterpieces.
