Nobody plays the menacing psychopath like Christoph Waltz. His performance as the terrifying yet impeccably mannered Nazi in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious B*****ds propelled him to international fame in 2009, he toyed amusingly with our expectations in Django Unchained, and if he ever so slightly disappointed as Blofeld in Spectre it was only, surely, because we were all hoping for so much.
