I love Alex Prager's video series for the NYT showcasing some of the greatest cinematic villains, played by some of my current favorite actors and actresses in film. Brad Pitt is actually, surprisingly, way too good as Jack Nance from Eraserhead and Viola Davis as Nurse Rachett is so chilling. They're all very simple, short, and good-looking. They are, essentially, moving photographs. It's a great follow-up to last years 14 Actors Acting. Not all of them are specific villains though, some are just channeling archetypes like "The Siren" or "The Firestarter." They've got this fantastically surreal quality to them. Watch them all here.
