Linda srites:: I agree with almost all said about Ralph Fiennes's films, including a ridiculous Wuthering Heights, but I thought him very good in Schindler's List and perfecto in Quiz Show. I believe he's very talented, but has not always lucked out with vehicles.
The LIST GROWS!!! I know I am not the only English Patient fan on this board, nor the only Ralph Fiennes fan! Even if I were, I'd fight to the DEATH for my 2nd favorite actor. Yes, he was wonderful in Schindler's List, and Quiz Show...but to ignore TEP is criminal, here!! I'm having heart failure!!! And I thought The End of the Affair was lovely, as did most critics, though I saw way more of Ralph than even *I* wanted to. I even like the utterly hokey Wuthering Heights, just because it has two of my favorite stars in it, though I've seen better versions. (Having said that, I must say that WH is almost ALWAYS hokey in film, IMHO.) The only movie of Ralph's that I absolutely, completely HATE & will not watch, even to see his sweet smile, is The Avengers, which is the stupidest, crappiest piece of junk I've ever seen put to film. Everyone connected with it should be ashamed, including, and especially Sean Connery! I didn't particularly care for Oscar & Lucinda, either, but thought Ralph's role was quite well done. His latest, Sunshine, has received a good bit of critical acclaim, but not much exposure.
I'm quite prepared to forgive all you folks for your completely wacko, insane, and utterly WRONG, WRONG, WRONG opinions (after all, I was able to forgive Rich for being the same about that DVD version of you-know-what), but you'd all better run far, run fast when next we meet. I'll have serious lessons in film appreciation to be teaching, doncha know!!!
