But on August 17, 2019, and before the much anticipated release of The Irishman (2019), we're celebrating his 76th birthday and such a day can't go without (yes, another) tribute to the legendary actor with the mole, so for this occasion, here's a compilation of his Top 20 highest-rated films... and please, don't be angry if some favorite of yours are missing, it's not personal, strictly poll business, as De Niro said (or was it Pacino?)
