He seems very familiar but I can't put my finger on it.

I know what you mean.  I thought it might be Michael Gambon at first, but it isn't.

That's an excellent make-up job they did.  I think knowing the character gives you a clue to the actor.  Still,  though, I could barely see it.

I'm the same. I know that I recognise him, particularly the eyes, but can't figure out who it is

For me, it was ONLY the eyes. I didn't know who it was either, but after reading it, I could just about see him in the eyes.

He is a stranger to no one that has our film habits.

Hint:

His first acting job was as an "uncredited extra" in ........

That was quite a break I would think.  Your first acting job was in a film that won the Oscar and BAFTA that year, for Best Picture.

He is a Brit.

The eyes, you say? Well ... they remind me of Toby Stephens.

You folks crack me up.  Below, down in the tweets was about Kenneth Branagh and his Shakespeare play coming up.  Also, I had it on the front page either yesterday or the day before.   LOL.

Well, he's totally unrecognizable! They even changed his eye color!

That is one impressive makeup job! I couldn't place him either. Though now I feel like I should have known it was Kenneth Branagh--he's pretty much cornered the market on best-known Shakespeare adaptations!

  • Cinephiles rushed to praise the list and take it to task: here are some responses that stood outLast Sunday, in the Observer special supplement on European cinema, we published a list of 25 films from across the continent that we felt were essential viewing in these tumultuous times.Compiled by Observer critics Mark Kermode, Simran Hans, Wendy Ide, Guy Lodge and Jonathan Romney, and edited down to the final 25 by me, the list ran in chronological order from 1922 (Nosferatu) to 2017 (On Body and Soul), taking in masterpieces from France, Italy, Poland, Romania, Greece and the UK along the way.

  • post Nadine Labaki: ?I really believe cinema can effect social change? - 16 February
  • The Oscar nominee talks about being a female director in Lebanon, the child poverty that inspired her latest film and the Syrian refugee crisisNadine Labaki is a Lebanese actor and director whose latest film, Capernaum (meaning confusion or chaos in Arabic), won the jury prize at the 2018 Cannes film festival and has since been nominated for a Bafta (beaten by Roma) and an Academy Award. The film tells the story of a 12-year-old boy, Zain, who lives in a Beirut slum and whose parents are incapable of taking care of him. Having run away from home, he lives for a while with an illegal immigrant from Ethiopia, Rahil. None of those who appear in the film is a professional actor.How did you come to start thinking about Capernaum?
    In Lebanon, we are exposed to the sight of children suffering on a daily basis. They are there on the streets, selling gum or flowers or carrying heavy loads, such as gas tanks. Sometimes, they?re just lying there. I once saw this kid on a cement block in the middle of the road at one o?clock in the morning. He wanted to sleep, but he couldn?t. It began with feeling responsible, with wanting to become the voice of these kids. I thought: if I stay silent, I?m complicit in this crime ? and it is a crime that we allow this to happen. I don?t know how we live with ourselves. These children are in perpetual danger. So I started going out with my co-writers to the most difficult neighbourhoods ? to the slums, to the detention centres, to the courts ? just watching. Continue reading...
  • post Bruno Ganz: always poetic and inspired, from Hitler's bunker rant to a Berlin angel - 16 February
  • The Swiss actor, who has died aged 77, will probably be remembered for his showstopping turn in Downfall, but his work with Wim Wenders is arguably more brilliantIt is the fate of actors sometimes to complete a lifetime of distinguished theatre and film work and then be remembered by a vast number of people chiefly for their role in some silly TV hit or lowbrow franchise. Something of the sort happened to the great Swiss actor Bruno Ganz who ? to his own huge interest and amusement ? became iconic to a younger generation for the endless viral YouTube memes based on his terrifying bunker rant as Hitler in the 2004 movie Downfall. The Fuhrer erupts with rage at Frank Lampard signing for Inter Milan, about the fact there is no camera in the iPod Touch, or about Oasis splitting. ?It?s amazing, the creativity from these kids! How they come up with these ideas!? Ganz exclaimed in an interview. Continue reading...
  • post Berlinale 2019 roundup ? from bad to wurst - 16 February
  • Traditionally, the Berlinale is a worthy if unspectacular film festival, but this year?s offerings largely range from the hapless to the tastelessIf film festivals were banquets, the signature dish of a vintage Cannes would be a rich, piquant bouillabaisse; of a good Sundance, a juicy burger dripping with relish. In Berlin, however, we?ve learned to expect something more like a tofu bratwurst with extra broccoli. This festival tends to be stodgy and not obviously appetising, but you generally hope that it will at least be good for you. This year it was barely that, and the broccoli was decidedly wilted.Everyone expected that festival director Dieter Kosslick, in his 18th and final Berlinale, would pull out some farewell fireworks. Yet 2019 gave us the dreariest competition anyone could remember. You can only feel sympathy for the jury, headed by Juliette Binoche. The opening film was shockingly insipid. Lone Scherfig (An Education) came a cropper with The Kindness of Strangers, an ensemble story about a bunch of outsiders crossing paths in New York and generally being endearingly nice to each other.
