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!

  • post The Traitor review ? the real goodfellas: Cosa Nostra on trial - 23 May
  • There are some show-stopping scenes in Bellocchio?s handsome true-crime movie about mafia informantsMarco Bellocchio?s The Traitor is a big, handsomely shot, true-crime gangster movie, ranging over 30 years from the early 1970s to the late 90s, scripted by Bellocchio with screenwriters Valia Santella, Ludovica Rampoldi and Francesco Piccolo. The film has the authoritative air of official history: sometimes brash, sometimes stolid, sometimes with flashes of inspiration and sometimes with long stretches of courtroom dialogue. It is in these sections where Bellocchio is perhaps self-consciously concerned, as a major Italian film-maker, to be seen delivering a definitive cinematic account of an important period of modern Italian life. Well, it was certainly a sound instinct to show the courtroom scenes at some length, because however bizarre and chaotic it could be, the court of law is the moral centre of these events.His subject is Italy?s sensational anti-mafia Maxi trial of 1986, in which hundreds of Sicilian mobsters were convicted, on the testimony of a tiny number of high-up pentiti, or informers, of which the most important was Tommaso Buscetta, a bulkily intimidating, charismatic presence portrayed here by Italian character actor Pierfrancesco Favino. He was the important Cosa Nostra guy who astonished everyone by committing the ultimate sin: treason. He snitched to the cops. It was something that made him lower than the low: hated not merely by the police and the media but his own people, too. The film tells Buscetta?s story, flashing backwards and forwards between his life as a young Palermo guy starting out in crime, to the elderly, morose type in a witness-protection scheme in the United States, paranoically buying semi-automatics at the local supermarket because they were on a special discount.

  • post Chelsea Manning director: 'She's a kind of punk rock figure for me' - 23 May
  • An intimate new documentary follows Chelsea Manning after her prison release ? from a safe house in the woods to a run for the senate. ?We had to tread carefully,? says Tim Travers HawkinsThe night Chelsea Manning was released from Fort Leavenworth military prison in Kansas, her first steps as a free woman were being filmed. It was May 2017 and she had just served nearly seven years of a 35-year sentence for disclosing 750,000 classified documents to Julian Assange?s WikiLeaks. ?It was nerve-racking,? says the man who filmed her, the British artist and documentary-maker Tim Travers Hawkins, from his apartment in New York. ?I knew it was the money shot, if you like. It was such an important historical moment.? Related: XY Chelsea review ? extreme closeup on Chelsea Manning's complex life Continue reading...
  • post The Secret Life of Pets 2 review ? return of the funny furry friends - 23 May
  • In this wittier and less frenetic sequel, the arrival of a newborn baby upends the world of pampered pooch MaxIn 2016, the team behind Despicable Me and Minions pulled off a blatant act of flattery with The Secret Life of Pets ? a family animation imagining what the animals of a New York apartment block got up to when their owners were at work. Its storyline felt so much like Toy Story with animals, you had to wonder if they got the lawyers in to give the script a once over. Now here?s that Hollywood rarity ? a sequel that?s better than the original. It?s wittier, less frenetic and introduces fresh characters and a nice scene of strategic furball vomming.In the first movie, Max, a dependable jack russell terrier, had his world turned upside down when his owner brought home a slobbering rescue dog; this time it?s her newborn baby. Patton Oswalt seamlessly replaces Louis CK as the voice of Max, who soon accepts the sprog as the newest member of the pack. But, like an overanxious parent, he begins to see danger everywhere.

  • post Booksmart star Beanie Feldstein: ?Everyone said we didn?t belong in LA? - 23 May
  • She was Lady Bird?s best friend and her brother Jonah Hill got a tattoo in her honour ? meet the sparky star of this summer?s wildest high school comedyBeanie Feldstein is eating ice-cream in a red dress that is as bright as strawberry sauce. ?This is one of the coolest things I?ve ever worn?? she says, her inflection rising at the end, as it often does, lending even her most confident assertions an equivocal note. The 25-year-old star of Lady Bird, Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising and the new film Booksmart is giggly and amiable. Within seconds of me spotting that her ice-cream is vegan (?I?m allergic to dairy??), she is recommending vegan bakeries in hipster enclaves of the UK capital that a visiting Californian might not be expected to know about. ?London is like my second home,? she trills. A glance at her Instagram feed proves that she is certainly well-acquainted with the area around the Palace theatre, where Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is playing.?I?m such a Harry Potter nut. My friends in college would be partying, and I?d be, like: ?Uh, I?m gonna go home and read some Harry Potter.?? Continue reading...
  • post Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ? what we learned from the Vanity Fair special - 23 May
  • JJ Abrams and co have hinted the finale will involve less CGI, more new characters ? and screen time for Carrie FisherIn just under seven months? time, a saga spanning nine films, three generations and 42 years will finally be over, bringing the epic story of the Skywalker family to a close. After steering The Force Awakens into favourable regard with fans, JJ Abrams has returned to co-write and direct the final movie in Disney?s semi-rebooted sequel trilogy, after stepping aside for Rian Johnson for 2017?s The Last Jedi. He might come to regret it: Abrams has the unenviable triple-task of following a film that veered off at several unexpected vectors, wrapping up a self-contained trilogy and tying a bow around a vast tale whose telling has taken the best past of half a century. To say there?s a lot of responsibility resting on his shoulders would be putting it mildly.Abrams, Lucasfilm head honcho Kathleen Kennedy and Episode IX?s cast recently sat down with Vanity Fair to discuss the film, somewhat inevitably giving almost nothing away. Nevertheless, a few titbits about what we can expect leaked through the NDA-imposed forcefield of tight-lippedness. Here?s what we know. Continue reading...
