10.15.14Netflix It's always fun to see a movie that seems designed to let a great actor gnaw on any piece of scenery in sight. Ben Kingsley in Sexy Beast, Tom Hardy in Bronson, Jack Nicholson in every movie since 1989... the parts that I liked the most about Shepard's The Matador were Pierce Brosnan's character so it's really fun to see a movie that's basically ALL that. It's almost like a play (was this a play?) where Jude Law goes off on occasional soliloquies... just gushing character. It must have been fun to write, fun to perform, and it was fun to watch. The problem with these types of movies though is that the plot has to be very light to leave enough room for this excessive character to live... so I had a few problems along the way but mostly this was a joy to watch. Richard E. Grant is also great in this... you'd never watch Withnail & I and imagine him being the straight man some day...
