: Oh, thanks, Rich, for reminding me of the name of Jodhi's movie, A World Apart. It was a pretty interesting film. I also forgot about 12 Monkeys...I found the film flawed in several ways, but also pretty interesting. I liked Brad Pitt's role, as well as Madeleine's. (I have trouble watching Bruce Willis do ANYTHING, but that's just my personal distaste for his general smarminess.)And I forgot Broken Chain. Chris, you should definitely check this one out, too, just for the interesting subject matter. It has several familiar Native actors in it, if I remember correctly. (it's been awhile.)But also definitely watch A Room With A View, since you seem to like Victorian stories...it's well worth it, if only for the wonderfully pompous Cecil Vyse, as portrayed by DDL. You can hardly believe it's the same actor who gave us Hawkeye.
I have seen all you mentioned except A World Apart. If you want a REALLY different DDL character, try My Beautiful Laundrette. It's an offbeat story, and you'll have to look twice to recognize DDL. All the more remarkable when you realize it was done the same year as Room With a View. And if you ever need confirmation that the man is human and can make mistakes, watch Eversmile, NJ.
