Phone Booth (2002) New York genre film master Larry Cohen (God Told Me To, The Stuff) wrote the Times Square-set screenplay for Phone Booth, an unrelenting exercise in suspense that puts a goatee-sporting Farrell in a glass box with a rifle scope aimed at his head.
The Beguiled (2017) It's hard to imagine any other man turning so many dignified ladies into horny messes the way that Colin Farrell can.
Minority Report (2002) Colin Farrell had only been famous in America for a couple of years in 2002, but that didn't stop him from coming out swinging opposite Tom Cruise in Steven Spielberg's dystopian action adaptation of Philip K.
The New World (2005) John Smith is a near-mythic figure in American history, but in Terrence Malick's lyrical depiction of the settlement of Virginia
The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017) In his second collaboration with Yorgos Lanthimos, Farrell's character Dr. Steven Murphy is presented with a moral dilemma.
Widows (2018) Colin Farrell's gift is that he's a character actor in the body of an absolute dreamboat, and there's no greater evidence of this than his performance in Steve McQueen's Widows.

In Bruges (2008) Farrell really is a perfect match for the Irish cynicism of Martin McDonagh, and that's perfectly on display in In Bruges.
The Lobster (2015) For a man who looks like he does, Colin Farrell manages to be quite the shapeshifter, using his symmetrical face and floppy hair to play a cavalcade of sleezes and assholes.
Miami Vice (2006) "I'm a fiend for mojitos." Can you imagine Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, or Chris Evans selling a line like that?
