Best Supporting Actor of 2005

 

8.  GHASSAN MASSOUD (Saladin), Kingdom of Heaven

 

9849e34981a8681bbb952f13dc58da0b--king-o

Speaking of acting behind a mask, I almost noted Edward Norton's performance as King Baldwin in Kingdom of Heaven (2005).  He wears the mask to conceal the ravage of leprosy.

But I did list Ghassan Massoud, the Syrian actor who plays Saladin who took Palestine during the crusades.  Massoud played the great warrior with dignity, intelligence and power.

Actor James Purefoy quit this movie shortly after production began. He had the lead role, but he felt it was too difficult to act behind the mask for the entire film. I thought Weaving did an excellent job.

 

Purefoy, a great actor, later got the opportunity to play a supporting role in a film about a dystopian Britain, in High-Rise (2015). My favorite Purefoy performances are in Bedrooms and Hallways (in which Weaving also has a priceless supporting role); but most of all as the lead in A Dance to the Music of Time, a television dramatization of Anthony Powell's novels. Purefoy plays the adult Nick Jenkins, although in the final episode an older Jenkins was played by John Standing, which was a mistake. Purefoy should have been allowed to age in the role as a few of the other actors in the series did. Nevertheless the series is a masterpiece of television period drama.

V for Vendetta is an adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel. It's a dystopian tale about a totalitarian regime in the U.K. Hugo Weaving has the difficult task of playing an underground resistance leader wearing a mask. Natalie Portman had her head shaven to play the civilian who doesn't know who to trust. It's somewhere in between comic book style and serious drama.

It's difficult to replicate the effect that this movie had at the time of its release. Many people wrongly dismissed it as yet another comic book superhero movie, when in fact it may have been one of the most political and socially critical films of the decade. It came out as the War on Terror was in full swing, with the wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq raging on and looking to never end. In the film, the country has been in an neverending war with foreign terrorists. The Bush Jr administration was releasing statements that any criticism of the administration was un-American. The same thing is stated by the fascistic leader played by John Hurt. The populace in the movie was kept duped and in line by the state news agency, primarily from a charismatic blowhard who fumes and rants each night at 8. This was during the ascendancy of Fox News, with Bill O'Reilly at 8 each night fuming and thundering in support of the White House line. And most shockingly, the film asks the audience to sympathize with and even root for a terrorist, one who is determined to bomb a large government building. Just think about the cojones it took to not only suggest this story be made by a major studio, but then for them to actually do it.

L'Enfant ("The Child") is a drama by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. They usually work with actors who don't have a star status, with long takes in a realistic style. The scenes are shot chronologically in order to make the actors live the experience. Belgian actors Jérémie Renier and Déborah François play two parents who are way too young and irresponsible to take care of their child.

Hard Candy is an independent film largely set in one room with two actors. Ellen Page is unrestrained as the teenager who confronts Patrick Wilson with her suspicions that he's an Internet pervert. The dialogues are an intense duel with accusations and denials.

Before we hit 2006 I would like to mention that I am going with that year for Away From Her.  Julie Christie was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar in 2007 for Away From Her which was originally released at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2006.

I've seen these. I'll talk about some of my nominees from among them.

 

Adam's Apples is a Danish comedy about calm and compassionate priest Ivan (Mads Mikkelsen) who runs a halfway house for paroled criminals. Ulrich Thomsen plays Adam, a newly arrived, unrepentant neo-Nazi gang leader. Ivan's positivity in the face of the open hostility of the residents is stretched to the breaking point. Mikkelsen and Thomsen are both excellent, playing roles that I would have expected the other to play.

 

Adams-Apples-2.jpg

 

 

Down in the Valley is a twisted romance set in southern California about a teenage girl (Evan Rachel Wood) who begins an affair with much older Harlan (Edward Norton), a cowboy, who, as the film progresses, you realize has a few screws loose. Norton is very believable in a role that requires the right balance or it becomes ridiculous.

 

down_in_the_valley20-20720-20edward_nort

 

 

The Exorcism of Emily Rose isn't terribly good, but Jennifer Carpenter was excellent in the title role. It's another supernatural "true story", this time covering the court case that resulted after an exorcism led to the death of the "possessed" girl, Emily Rose. The good cast includes Tom Wilkinson as the priest who's on trial, Laura Linney as an attorney, Campbell Scott, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Mary Beth Hurt, Colm Feore, and Kenneth Welsh. Carpenter gets to run the gamut of sweet teenage girl to demonic rage.

Harsh Times is another movie with problems, but a good central performance. Christian Bale stars as a Special Forces veteran of the Iraq War with PTSD who is struggling to readjust to civilian life. He wants to be a cop, but his emotional issues will probably keep that from happening. He spends his days driving around LA with his old friend (Freddy Rodriguez, who is also good). Bale keeps making more and more dangerous decisions that will eventually get someone hurt. Bale is very good as someone wound too tight and incapable of articulating the help he needs.

Hostel is an ultra-grisly horror thriller about young American tourists who get captured by an East European company that provides victims to rich clients who pay to torture and kill people. My nominee Rick Hoffman shows up in the last third as one of the paying clients, a motor-mouth worried that he won't be able to "follow through" when he gets in the room with his "victim". He's very funny, and a big tonal shift from the graphically horrific proceedings surrounding his scenes.

 

400px-Hostel_2.jpg

 

 

Lady Vengeance aka Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is South Korean director Park Chan-wook's final installment in his "Vengeance" trilogy. The story concerns the revenge a wrongfully convicted woman (my nominee Lee Young-ae) exacts on the man (Choi Min-sik) who actually committed the murder she was convicted of. Lee gets to show a broad range here, and she more than stands up against Choi, who often blows his fellow performers off the screen.

 

200512100004.jpg

 

 

The Notorious Bettie Page is the tongue-in-cheek biopic of the 50s pin-up girl. Gretchen Mol has the best role of her career as the good girl who somehow becomes a world famous nude and fetish model during the repressive 1950s. Mol was an actress that was promoted as being a "next big thing" in the 1990s, and it didn't happen. If she had been given better roles, like this one, back then, she just might have lived up to that hype.

 

9008756_orig.jpg

 

 

Serenity is a film version of writer-director Joss Whedon's (very) short-lived TV series Firefly. It's a space Western, with many of the tropes and character types of a western, but set in a spacefaring time of the future. This is science fiction, but there are no aliens, only very well-drawn characters and expertly crafted situations. I had never seen the show when I saw this movie, and I loved it, so don't let ignorance of the TV series put you off of the film. The entire cast is terrific, but I singled out three people for nominations: Nathan Fillion, who plays the captain of the ship Serenity, and heads a motley crew of misfits who work as mercenaries, smugglers and other minor illegal activities. Fillion is funny, handsome, and charismatic, a real star in the old-school sense, and this should have led to bigger things for him. My next nominee was Chiwetel Ejiofor, who plays the quietly intense killer sent by the ruling government to capture or kill the Serenity's crew. He's a complex villain, articulate and refined while also lethal, and Ejiofor lends him the elegance and menace required. My final nominee was Summer Glau, who plays the largely mute girl River Tam, who, along with her brother, have been living with the Serenity crew. No one is sure what's wrong with River (a big part of the film is discovering her origins), but when she "activates", all hell breaks loose. Glau manages wide-eyed fear and insecurity along with physical grace and intensity when it's called for.

Wolf Creek is another horror thriller, and another that's based on a "true story". It also involves tourists, this time traveling through Australia's back country, who meet the seemingly friendly and outgoing Mick (John Jarratt). He's like a "Crocodile" Dundee/rural Ozzie caricature, crass, beer-swilling and always ready with a dirty joke and a laugh. The twist this time, though, is that he's also a murderous psychopath preying on anyone unfortunate to run across his trail. Jarratt makes for one of the better screen crazies in some time, over-the-top but in the right way. Again, the movie itself isn't much to crow about, but Jarratt is terrific.

I have not seen:

 

Color Me Kubrick

C.R.A.Z.Y.

The Death of Mr. Lazarescu

Ellie Parker

Factotum

Kinky Boots

The Producers

Separate Lies

Shooting Dogs

Tristram Shandy: A **** and Bull Story

Vers Le Sud

Wah-Wah

Water

The World's Fastest Indian

 

Lawrence, I've seen the above from your list.  i didn't really care for Deepa Mehta's Water, a Canadian-Indian co-production.

2_t.jpg

Colour Me Kubrick, A True---ish Story by Stanley's longtime assistant director Brian W. Cook and penned by his assistant Anthony Frewin is based on the true case of Alan Conway who impersonated Kubrick to elicit favours, gay sex and money from people.  The twist is that Conway, played by John Malkovich looks and sounds nothing like the real Stanley Kubrick.  In fact, Malkovich's accent keeps changing from scene to scene.  It's a brave performance that you may either love or hate.  Sort of like some of the broad performances by Nicolas Cage.  Conway may have been better suited impersonating John Waters!  

Pictured above with Malkovich is Jim Davidson who was one of my supporting actor choices.  He is a vain British variety show singer who plays holiday seaside spots.  Alan Conway latches on to him as he does others with promises of managing his career convincing him that he belongs in Las Vegas.  The amazing thing is that Davidson is such a performer in Britain and was an actual victim of the real Alan Conway.  That they would believe for a second that Conway was Kubrick, or even if he was that he would then be interested in them is one of the many fun things about this film.  It's really about everyday untalented people with big dreams.

Ellie-Parker-2005-naomi-watts-4826397-50

Naomie Watts made my top ten list of actresses with her portrayal of an aspiring Australian actress, Ellie Parker in Los Angeles.  It's a cheaply shot reality based film following Watts through auditions and a rather hectic life in the city of lights.  She is very funny.

kinky-boots.jpg?w=529&h=354

Chiwetel Ejifor plays Lola a drag queen in Kinky Boots.  He was one of my Best Actor runner-ups.  The film is a feel good cross between The Full Monty and Priscilla Queen of the Desert.  Joel Edgerton inherits a failing shoe factory and somehow connects with Ejiofor who inspires him to make specialty female footwear for men.  Ejifor camps it up just right.

1666365,MRum1fCz2O6_eLuS_9LWpLPsl+_dc+gy

Shooting Dogs is another look at the genocide in Rwanda.  John Hurt plays a Priest who does his very best to shelter victims of the tragedy.  Hurt was in my top ten list of best actors.

vers-le-sud-2005-heading-south-alt-charlCharlotte Rampling was on my list of Best Actresses for Vers Le Sud.  She plays a middle-aged woman who travels to the Caribbean once a year to have relations with younger black men.  But what is she offering in return and how involved is she emotionally with these men?  i think it's one of Rampling's best performances.

Bonneville-Salt-Flats.jpgAnthony Hopkins as Kiwi motorcycle enthusiast in The World's Fastest Indian was my number two choice of Best Actors.  This is really a road movie following the elderly Munro as he journeys from New Zealand to the Salt Flats in America to challenge for the world speed record for motorcycles.  His machine is purely homemade and Munro has a heart condition.  The thing I liked about Hopkins' performance is his good-natured determination.  Yes, he has ambitious dreams but he is well grounded and spends much time in the film with ordinary people he meets along the way.  He is both tortoise and hare.

Accused (Anklaget) is a Danish drama with Troels Lyby as a man who's accused by his 14-year old daughter of sexually abusing her. He plays this suspicious character without making obvious whether he's guilty or not. You can see the doubt creeping into his wife (Sofie Gråbøl), colleagues and friends, even if they claim to believe in his innocence.

 

anklaget1.jpg

 

Pierrepoint (aka The Last Hangman) is a British biopic about executioner Albert Pierrepoint. He terminated the life of hundreds of convicts in the 1930s and 1940s. Was he just good at his job? Did he struggle with his conscience or feel compassion? Timothy Spall had to change his accent from London to Yorkshire.

Best Supporting Actress of 2005

 

2.  MIRANDA RICHARDSON (Lauren Compton), Wah-Wah

3.  EMILY WATSON (Ruby Compton), Wah-Wah

6.  JULIE WALTERS (Gwen Traherne), Wah-Wah

wah-wah-grant.jpg

Richard E. Grant's sole directorial effort so far was his autobiographical Wah-Wah which covers his boyhood in Swaziland.  This is a snapshot of colonial views of infidelity and divorce.  The boy, like Grant is non-judgmental.  This is a film where you like and enjoy all of the characters.

miranda-richardson-gabriel-byrne-wah-wah

Miranda Richardson plays Lauren Compton who walked out on her marriage to hubby Harry (Gabriel Byrne) with his best friend many years before.  In the film she returns to reinsert herself into the family despite Harry's remarriage.  Harry has since become an alcoholic.

gabriel-byrne-emily-watson-wah-wah-2005-Emily Watson plays Harry's new wife, a flashy American stewardess who is the outsider in this faux posh society.

wah-wah-2005-julie-walters-nicholas-houlAnd finally, Julie Walters plays the neighbour who is also the victim of a broken marriage.  This really is a movie where the performances are everything.
