Ralph knocked it outta the park as Amon Goethe
Had never even heard of the other guy until now.
I have to believe you've seen something with him even if you didn't know who he was.
I find the resemblance uncanny especially when you look at them at similar ages.
zero doubt for me.
Fun fact: they actually had to tone down Goethe for Schindler's List because if they showed how cruel he really was it would have turned the movie into a slasher film
I can't think of anybody that could have played the role better than Ralph Fiennes
Indeed. A truly great movie with a name so long I fear it put people off before they even saw it.
You might be right because it made very little money.
An interesting fact about the name: Brad Pitt said he would only be involved if the producers agreed not to change it.
CHECKMATE HE HE
I read how one holocaust survivor who met Fiennes' as Goethe was completely terrified of him.
Apparently he did a pretty convincing job.
His performance as Amon is as good as it gets, imo.
Personally I prefer Sir Ranulph Fiennes he is a bad mofo
That's not just MJ. That's Joe Fiennes as MJ.
I need evidence. Photos are deceiving.
You should go ask them for blood samples.
He wants that Fienne ass DNA.
Ralph is one of my favorite actors working today.
I've only seen Joseph in Elizabeth and Shakespeare in Love (oddly both released in 1998, both nominated for best picture at the Oscars, and both feature Queen Elizabeth I as a character).
I really like both of those movies, my two favorite of that year most likely, and Joseph gives good performances in each one. It was kind of difficult to see him as Shakespeare, but that movie was never supposed to be about the real Shakespeare anyway.
That being said, based on those two films I have my doubts that he could ever deliver a performance as great as Ralph at his best.
I'd say Joseph is very good, but Ralph is one of the best.
Joseph is good but Ralph has a deeper well from which to draw from.
You should check out The Handmaid's Tale. He has a major role in it.
Gotta go with Rape Fiennes. Can't say I care for anything Joseph's been in. I haven't seen Enemy at the Gates, though.
