This cult film was an odd role choice for Voight, who single-handedly defined the movie with his amazing performance as the formidable villain. Centered around a National Geographic film crew tracking the elusive Anaconda, the quaint special effects have not dated well, but Voight’s performance has. Anaconda was directed by and also starred Jennifer Lopez, Eric Stoltz, and Ice Cube.
