should be worn with aplomb
bordering on
curly-headed cork-screwed madness.

Brad Pitt in Snatch and Fight Club.


Brad Pitt in a dress. I’m waiting to see what he develops into.


Brad Pitt in theVampire Chronicles? Perhaps, but surprisingly, Tom Cruise did the better job.

Johnny Depp in Donnie Brasco. Johnny Depp in Donnie Brasco. Johnny Depp in Donnie Brasco and Johnny Depp in Donnie Brasco.

donniebrascoJohnny Depp in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and Johnny Depp in Ed Wood and Johnny Depp in Cry Baby.


Forget the prettiness of Edward Scissorhands and the swaggering fun of Pirates of Caribbean. Though, worth enjoying. Has the man acted at all over the last decade? Shame to see good looks get in the way of talent. Oh, but those beautiful looks in Dead Man, but then that is Jarmusch set to a Neil Young soundtrack.


Johnny Depp in Benny and Joon. Ah, I’ve missed a few of his more recent films. I’m sure that Neverland and Sweeney Todd are brilliant
Bill Murphy in Broken Flowers. Beautiful film. Beautiful concept. Jarmusch, again.


Matt Dillon in Drug Store Cowboy.  Heather Graham in Drug store Cowboy. Diane (Kelly Lynch)  in Drug Store Cowboy.


Timothy Hutton in Beautiful Girls. Timothy Hutton in Ordinary People. Tmothy Hutton in the Falcon and the Snowman.



Tom Waits in Down by Law, John Lurie in Down by Law,

Tom Waits’ voice in Mystery Train, Tom Waits and Iggy Pop and Bill Murray in Coffee and Cigarettes.


Harvey Keitel in Smoke. John Malkovich in anything. John Malkovich particularly in Death of a Salesman.

Gotta go. My back’s killing me.

Abbey Lincoln doing “For all we know“, from Drug Store Cowboy at about the 18 minute mark. Can’t find the beautiful version from the soundtrack.

William S Burroughs pontificating as Father Tom. Brilliant scene. Bob shooting up and dreaming of a sky filled with spoons. I bought that soundtrack way back when. One of the best soundtracks I’ve ever owned. Guess Matt Dillon was old enough to survive it all in a way that River Phoenix never was.

The trailer above is the only thing I can embed from that film, and then fools gold, one of my favourites, fan clip for Snatch.

    Mmm-hmm. John Malkovich. Johnny Depp has tried very hard not to let his pretty face get in the way of acting, I think. I actually really enjoyed his performances in the Pirates series. At least he’s not playing a sparkling vampire. I can take or leave Brad Pitt. Mostly leave. Haven’t been enthralled with him since the over-the-top A River Runs Through It. Harvey Keitel can go ahead and fall off the face of the earth as far as I’ve concerned. Oh wait, it seems like he already has. Thank goodness.
