The 10 Most Cynical Movie Characters of All Time

"Everybody loves a cinematic cynic, don't they? Throughout the decades, filmmakers have revelled in to bringing uniquely sardonic characters to life, from the dark, angry film noirs of the 30s and 40s all the way through to today's gritty thrillers. There are so many career defining characters and performances to explore – whether they're the hero of their story or the villain, it's frequently the cold, self-interested personality that not only gets the most attention, but leaves the most impact on viewers. Films have delved into how such pessimistic worldviews can be born, fostered and allowed to grow, and the impact that can have on not just the individual, but the world they inhabit too."
