Why not celebrate his all-too-short career with a list of his
top five films. Here they are >


Reservoir Dogs: As Nice Guy Eddie, Penn ran the crime show for
his dad until hell broke loose.


Rumble Fish: In his debut feature performance, Penn was a member
of Matt Dillon’s unruly gang in this Francis Ford Coppola tale.


The Funeral: As Christopher Walken’s gangster brother, Penn won
the best supporting actor award at the Venice Film Festival in this


The Darwin Awards: Premiered at Sundance the day after his
death, Penn played an ice fisherman who thinks that dynamite might
be the best way to break the ice.
