You'll rarely find opposing kinds of performances as splendid as those offered by Daniel Day Lewis in My Left Foot and Morgan Freeman in Driving Miss Daisy. Day Lewis' performance is extroverted. It's the kind of role, the kind of performance that often wins acting awards. The difference is that Day Lewis ups the standard for this kind of acting. All of the stuff he does seems right for the character.

 

On the other hand, Morgan Freeman's work is almost all interior. He doesn't have the kind of big scenes that Day Lewis has. Freeman has the "acting is reacting" kind of part. He anchors the film in reality and resists the tendency to comment on an earlier era from the viewpoint of 1989. In many years Oscar would have wound up on Freeman's mantle. Taken together, these two performances show exterior and interior acting at their best.

I didn't realize Enemies was a 1989 film. It was great, and Anjelica Huston was brilliant! Amazing film.

I want to take a moment to highlight Shintaro Katsu, among my nominees for Best Actor for his return to the title role in Zatoichi aka Zatoichi: Darkness Is His Ally. Katsu had been in films since 1955, and had first appeared as the beloved character Ichi in 1962's The Tale of Zatoichi. A good-natured blind masseur and gambler, Ichi travels by foot across feudal-era Japan in search of good food, good work and good gambling. Being blind, many unscrupulous people think they can take advantage of him, and he often plays up his seeming infirmity. But in truth, Ichi is an accomplished swordsman who is more than a match for all but the greatest of samurai.

 

z-1b.jpg

 

This character appeared in 25 films between 1962 and 1973, followed by four seasons (totaling 100 episodes) of a TV series, all starring Katsu. It made him one of the biggest stars in Japan. But by 1979, he had grown tired of the role, and after the fourth season of the TV series, he retired from the part, vowing not to return. His next big acting job was to be the starring role in Akira Kurosawa's upcoming film Kagemusha, but a clash on set during the very first day led to Katsu being fired and the role recast with Tatsuya Nakadai. The 1980's proved to be a tough time for Katsu, as his problems with alcohol and drugs became more prevalent, leading to run-ins with the law and less work. That may be why he agreed, in 1989, to return to the role that had made him a star for one last outing. This film is less humorous than the earlier outings, more bloody and violent, and darker in overall tone. Katsu's aged appearance lends more weight to the proceedings, and there's a melancholy pall over the film. Katsu is very good in the role, and it's possible he knew it would be one of his last. He appeared in only 2 more films the following year before descending further into drug and alcohol addiction, with more arrests, and finally his death in 1997 at age 65. He was truly one of the great screen legends of Japan, and thankfully many of his works have found a new audience in the West in the past few decades.

Why is **** Skye's first name censored?

 

I believe we discussed this a few pages back, after skimpole nominated her for something. I researched it, and all I could find on Urban Dictionary was an alternate meaning for her name being "a small, insignificant town", which doesn't sound like a censorable remark to me.

 

It's still a mystery.
