2. “Snatch”

In 2000, British director Guy Ritchie wrote and directed this comedy featuring an ensemble cast. The two intertwined plots dealt with the search for a missing diamond and a boxing promoter (Jason Statham) who gets caught up with a dangerous gangster (Alan Ford). Pitt was brought in as an Irish Traveller, complete with an accent to boot. What makes Pitt’s performance stand out is his ability to go against the industry’s pressures to typecast him as a sex symbol and leading man. Some loved Pitt’s attempt at sounding like a Northern Irishman, while others called it the worst accent they’d ever heard. Either way, Snatch is still one of his standout performances.
