Please do not mistake this as the same as asking what the best film Edward Norton has been in is. Let's just talk about what his best performance was.

I just rewatched Fight Club, which was amazing, and I'm having trouble deciding because he was also amazing in Primal Fear and American History X, then also quite good in a handful of other films.

American History X is phenomenal.

I also am obsessed with Fight Club, but the movie wasn't taken over by his performance, brad pitt kinda evened him out. American History X was completely Norton's movie, really.

Moon.

Edit: You know, I have a terrible time distinguishing Edward Norton and Kevin Spacey. I'd have to go with American History X.

Out of those, I've only seen Fight Club

However, he was rather awesome in it so I don't have any problem voting for it.

American history X -without a doubt!

What was that film he was in with Robert DeNiro?
Where they rob a bank and Ed Norton pretends to be a retard?
RIP Turnip. RIP MCA.
RIP #58.

Of those, probably the 25th hour. He was also great in Red Dragon though, and in Death to Smoochy, he was the saving grace of that film.

I've only seen clips of American History X and he looked amazing in it, but he was great in Fight Club too...

Yeah, I have to agree with what SeveralSpecies said. I personally think Fight Club is a better movie, but his acting was way more prominant in AHX, so...AHX.

I've only seen two of the specific.. But in other, I think he made a pretty good Bruce Banner..

I voted American History X anyway because it's one of my favourite movies..
#19
The Illusionist was pure genius.

I've only seen American History X out of all of those and he did a superb job acting in that so that gets my vote
