I can't stand listening to Entertainment Tonight, so I turned off the sound and watched. I am noticing something interesting in the most recent set of MOTOE publicity -- Depp is often the lead in the story (as he was in Branagh's interview with Jimmy Kimmel) or he is first up, as here on ET. I am so hopeful that this means his performance is so good, so strong, that it must be recognized, must lead even if his part is small, and finally he's going to get a win and maybe even awards. Damn, damn I am likely tempting fate, but I see what I see.
I so wish I was going to see MOTOE not knowing the plot so well. Although I've not read any Christie recently, (and have forgotten the plot of many of her books) this story I do recall quite clearly. I think I need to have temporary amnesia for the night I go see it. In any case I will go just to enjoy Johnny, the scenery and the performances of the stellar cast that has been assembled.
Yes, a beautiful video. His heart is so apparent in many videos and particularly in this one. This is why he is important to me. How he shares himself, uncertainties, passions. I do not consider him a movie star. He is the antithesis of that, maybe an artist marooned in the wrong century and doing his best to be true to himself.
