BEST 7. 'A Bronx Tale'
“A Bronx Tale” didn’t just showcase De Niro’s impressive acting skills, it proved he could succeed behind the camera as well. In addition to directing this 1993 crime drama, De Niro played Lorenzo Anello, a father trying to keep his son away from the local mob scene. Acclaimed film critic Roger Ebert praised the film and De Niro, saying, “De Niro, in his debut as a director, finds the right notes as he moves from laughter to anger to tears. What's important about the film is that it's about values.” —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Savoy Pictures)
