11 Cinematic Sociopaths Who Could Program the Hell Out of My iPod

By Agent Bedhead | Seriously Random Lists | October 10, 2012 | Comments ()


In honor of the upcoming Seven Psychopaths, I wanted to write a fitting list, but it seems that the lovely Miss Cindy Davis has already fulfilled the requirements for one covering 10 Superior Psychopaths. As such, I've decided to switch paths and list my favorite Cinematic Sociopaths instead. I'm sure a few of these choices might be considered a miscall in the Psychopath vs. Sociopath debate, so here's a quick primer on the differences between the two types of personalities. One thing can be said for several of these entries -- they have great taste in music.

Gary Oldman in The Professional:

Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight:

Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted:

Christian Bale in American Psycho:

Tom Ripley in The Talented Mr. Ripley:

Joe Pesci in Goodfellas:

Al Pacino in Scarface:

Sarah Michelle Gellar in Cruel Intentions:

Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men:

Michael Madsen Reservoir Dogs:

Louise Fletcher in One Few Over the Cuckoo's Nest:

Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean:

    I was having my haircut once and the barber had some generic, shitty radio station on that was playing the usual forgettable contemporary shite that passes for music with most people, when out of nowhere - just as he was putting the scissors to my head - Stuck in the Middle With You came on. I have never been simulatenously more terrified and, 'well, living this out in real life would probably be worth an ear,'ed in my life.

    we forgot Little Alex. he was all over the beethoven.

  • pnnylne

    Verbal Kint?

  • AudioSuede

    Tom Ripley a sociopath? Dude was definitely crazy, but hardly for being an unfeeling killer. If anything, for letting his feelings get the better of him.

  • Ernest Hirsch

    People still use iPods?

  • Blake

    J.D. from Heathers?

  • Aratweth

    How about John Malkovitch as Valmont in Dangerous Liasons, for the opera/classical lovers...anyone???

  • PDamian

    Absolutely! Although I think la Marquise de Mertueil could do the same, and she's just as sociopathic as Valmont.

    How about a list for narcissistic personality disorder? My boss was interviewed on TV once for a minute or two, so she's eligible.

  • chanohack

    But how's her taste in music? My dad and I are pretty certain that my mom is a sociopath. Her taste in music is THE WORST.

  • ,

    Has no taste in music as far as I know.

  • DenG

    I like James Spader in Pretty in Pink, and Linda Fiorentino in The Last Seduction. Slap you back hard.

  • shardik

    Al Pacino's Scarface does not deserve to be on this list.

    Neither does Jack Sparrow.

    Otherwise, it's pretty darn perfect

    As good as Heath Ledger was, Oldman's Norman Stansfield is the gold standard for sociopath's as far as I'm concerned.
