52. 'Arlington Road' (1999)

Bridges plays a widowed professor lecturing about domestic terror groups who becomes convinced that his polite architect neighbor Tim Robbins is actually planning an attack. This highly stylized, hysterically paranoid and twisty-turny thriller begins with the actor in total freak-out mode, and it pretty much never lets up. So much anguish! It's over-the-top and often quite silly, but Bridges manages to go full ham and still keep it entertaining. You can credit him for giving it his all while also not taking any of this too seriously.
