I'm sorry to say that I've never seen the movie. I read the script some years ago, and found the character of "Barrie" to be so far removed from the real JMB as to be unrecognisable. This is not a value judgement - I'm a great admirer of Johnny Depp, and his performance may well be remarkable, but from everything I've read and heard, he doesn't sound much like the JMB I have come to know, either in looks, spirit, or his sense of deadpan humour. What do you think?
I don't think I've ever seen a direct and so complimentary comment about Johnny before from him--or has this already been posted? (I'm a bit out of the loop since I haven't had time to keep up with Invalids)
