Favorite Actors: Kevin Spacey
Favorite Performances: American Beauty
House of Cards
The Usual Suspects
Never has an actor done such a series of surprise roles as Spacey has in his career. Many of the characters he played cannot be defined in a review without spoiling the films. Moon, Se7en, The Usual Suspects. Many of them are about the twist. Spacey has never been one to play it safe and that is why it is fun to watch his films. He has some less than stellar movies in his oeuvre, such as The Negotiator or A Time to Kill or Superman Returns (a film I am very fond of even if others aren’t). With every mediocre albeit entertaining flick, two more brilliant pieces of cinema pop up. And also a television show in which he needs an Emmy this next year to put in between his two Oscars.
