Since his explosive performance as the cocksure Johnny Boy in Martin Scorcese's Mean Streets in 1973, Robert De Niro has been one of the most powerful actors in film.

De Niro returns to the big screen this February with a portrayal of a troubled widower in Everybody’s Fine, the new release from British director Kirk Jones.

To mark his latest role, we look back at some of his finest work; from the harrowing portrayal of Travis Bickle, an ex Vietnam veteran driven to violence, to Jack Byrnes, the paranoid ex CIA agent obsessed with his cat, with many other unmissable performances in between.
