… two performances that left me slackjawed in awe last year:
“Pope” played by Ben Mendelsohn in Animal Kingdom, and
“César” played by Niels Arestrup in Un Prophete.
To call these supporting roles does them no justice. See for yourself
Then, at the end of UnProphete that haunting version of Mack the Knife running over the credits which turns out to be Jimmy Dale Gilmour from his 2000 album “One Endless Night”. It’s little “mental problems” Smokey from the bowling alley in the Big Lebowsky. Walter puts a gun to his head over an argument about his (Smokey’s) foot being over the line.
