Some of the best things in life come in pairs, and film is no different. No, I don’t mean sequels and/or remakes, because I think we all know how those often turn out. Instead, I mean those actors and directors who very frequently collaborate on films, so much so that it feels odd when the actor does not appear in one of the director’s films.
There have been some incredible collaborations throughout cinema history; Kurosawa Akira and Toshiro Mifune brought the samurai film to life, Clint Eastwood and Sergio Leone breathed new life into the dying western in the 1960s, and Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro brought audiences some of the best films to come out of New Hollywood in the 1970s and into the 90s. And of course there are amazing collaborations in modern cinema: Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson, Wes Anderson and his troupe of actors, and Martin Scorsese’s recent partnership with Leonardo DiCaprio.
