Watched a B movie on Netflix the other night. It starred Denzel Washington. I think it was called Man On Fire. Wow what a stinker but the cast included Giancarlo Giannini.
How could he be reduced to such an unimpressive role? Don’t they know who he is? I guess by virtue of having amazing talent it doesn’t mean the world necessarily gives a shit.
Great acting is frightening because it seems like the actors are the thing they are portraying and you get lost in t’s reality and then maybe have an occasional after thought “oh they’re actors this thing they’re doing didn’t actually happen to them”. That’s one of the greatest feelings when you are in the audience and the acting is that good.
Giancarlo Giannini killed it in Swept Away and The Seven Beauties. I guess it doesn’t matter.
