I have a lot of respect for the acting career of Robert De Niro. One thing that the world of film and acting helps me with is that there is a difference between knowing a person by their character and appreciating a professional for how well they do in their profession. De Niro appears to have taken great care to keep who he is out of the public eye so that he’s assessed on his actual profession and he has done brilliantly. Really good to come across this tribute that they did a few years ago.
Meryl Streep – a great actress in her own way – also offers a good introduction to another fine tribute to the actor who to me has been an example of what is truly great in that art.
