Watching movies until we run out.

Geoffrey Rush is an amazing and versatile actor who lends his talents to some unusual projects. He’s one of my favorite parts of Shakespeare in Love and he brought a great deal of power to the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, lending them a degree of legitimacy I wasn’t expecting from them while at the same time delivering a ridiculously broad and over the top performance. It was with this film, though, that he established himself as a powerful force in the acting world. He came from nowhere to win the Oscar for lead actor with this film and after that I came to feel that I would be comfortable watching any movie he took part in. What’s even more astonishing is that his part in the movie is so relatively small for a lead actor nomination.
