Unforgettable Performances - Edward Norton (Primal Fear, 1996)

"Jesus Christ Marty. If that's what you think, I'm disappointed in you. There was never an Aaron either"

Edward Norton definitely trolled the whole world in this movie with his breakout performance in this court thriller - Primal Fear. Edward starred along Richard Gere and Laura Linney who also delivered solid performances. Norton played a young alter boy accused of murder and throughout the film, we a see a quiet, seemingly innocent, stuttering Norton declare his innocence and did a great job in selling it to his attorney and associates. What we didn't know is that we were about to witness some of the most impressive twists in this film. You see Norton shed his soft side and totally transform into unsuspecting evil. He was cold, convincing and did a great job in selling the twists. He made this movie better than it should have been.
