The 20 Best Performances of 2010
No. 4. James Franco, 127 Hours
James Franco had to be good for 127 Hours to be any good. After all, he’s the only actor on screen for the vast majority of the movie, since he plays a young man whose arm is trapped between a boulder and a hard place in the middle of nowhere. The psychological and physical journey Franco takes us on is amazingly entertaining, funny, heart-wrenching and engrossing.
