Was it Jim Jarmusch who directed that?

I love Dead Man, the opening scene where he travels to the town of Machine makes me so smile so much. The bit where he dodges the pig! Acting masterclass, and owes something to Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin I think?

Jarmusch directed 'Paterson'and 'Only Lovers Left Alive', two of my favourite movies so I'm not surprised he did Dead Man as well.

It's a lot more serious than the aforementioned but has that same dreamy quality. And he coaxes wonderfully natural performances from his actors.

Regarding The Libertine....one of my favourite scenes is where Johnny asks his servant to play a part in his play and he replies:
"I'm not suitable for Miss C******s, sir, I am A******.

Yes, he did.
It annoys me how he keeps getting overlooked; they seem to refuse to accept him as a 'serious' actor. :heart4: :mad:

One film that stands in my memory is 'Secret Window'. A lot of critics disliked it but hailed Johnny's performance. And although I enjoyed the film, it would have been unremarkable if it wasn't Johnny playing Mort the way he did. I actually cried at the end; the sad thing was we were watching a man's mind disintegrate and didn't know until the end.
I felt so sorry for Mort - anyone else he would have seemed creepy, but Johnny made me like him. He did the same with Sweeney Todd. :bawl:

:signhi: I also love Mort, but I love more Sweeney. However my favorite characters of all the movies are Raphael and John Wilmont. I think the characters are sweet because theys are victims first or before in the movie. I also cry at Johnny's performance because Johnny is so sweet. :tear:
