37. 'Texasville' (1990)

No, Jeff Bridges was not the lead of The Last Picture Show. By the time this sequel to the original film came about, however, he had become a bigger star and his character Duane had gone from teenage dead-ender to professional oil man. This long-after-the-fact follow-up has none of the power of the original – it feels more like a check-in with the characters than a story in its own right. But Bridges does get to shine in it. As a formerly successful guy who's now struggling to keep his life and business afloat, he takes his usual affability and sneaks in a hint of slippery con-man charm.
