Best/favorite part played by Kiefer Sutherland

I was re-watching 'Dark City' a few days ago, and it struck me (again) that Kiefer Sutherland is quite good in this movie.. It is not the most 'outgoing' or 'physical' part he has ever played, but it seems to me that he is pretty far from his real character, although that is a complete guess of course. Never met the guy.

He's small in his movements, his voice is below a certain volume, his accent is decent, and he does not dominate the movie, which I find refreshing. (I consider 'Dark City' to be an ensemble piece, but that's just me) Don't get me wrong, I'm not a huge Kiefer Sutherland fan at all, but he got into my head.. again, with this part.

I wonder, what do you guys think? Where did you consider Kiefer Sutherland to be at his best? I purposely did not make a voting list as his curriculum vitea is quite long at this point. To refresh: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000662/?ref_=nv_sr_1

That's a good role in a good film.

I really liked his early performance in Promised Land.

He's great in 24, but if we're only counting films, then Melancholia is my pick.
