Best Dustin Hoffman Movies


Dustin Hoffman is my favourite actor of the 1970’s. In many of his earlier roles, he seemed to be cast as the outsider at odds with society. Nominated for many awards over the years, he has now matured into one the screen’s great character actors. Hoffman has won the Best Actor Oscar twice and has been nominated seven times.

In order, here are my favourite Dustin Hoffman Movies:

  1. The Graduate (1967) 
  2. Midnight Cowboy (1969)
  3. Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)
  4. Rain Man (1988)
  5. Tootsie (1982)
  6. Marathon Man (1976)
  7. All the President’s Men (1976)
  8. Lenny (1974)
  9. Papillon (1973)
  10. Straw Dogs (1971)
  11. Wag the Dog (1997)
  12. Finding Neverland (2004)
  13. Sleepers (1996) 
  14. Hero (1992)
  15. Little Big Man (1970)
  16. Moonlight Mile (2002)
  17. Last Chance Harvey (2008)
  18. Runaway Jury (2003)

Favourite Dustin Hoffman Quotes:
  • So when I told my parents I wanted to go into acting because I was flunking out of my first year of junior college, they were relieved that I had picked something other than joining the army. But I can’t imagine how they had high hopes for me.
  • There’s a rebirth that goes on with us continuously as human beings. I don’t understand, personally, how you can be bored. I can understand how you can be depressed, but I just don’t understand boredom.
