You want to see a real performance, watch Under the Volcano. Or The Dresser. The man was a titan. Glad he reunited with Lumet for Lumet's last film too.

The Poirot responsible for the creation of Jason Bourne, James Bond and Erin Brockovich. Good CV.

:cry: :cry: :cry: He is god-tier in Big Fish. I already bawl my eyes out to that movie, now I may never be able to watch it again. Literally might die from crying too much if I do.

He shows up at the end of
Ocean's 12
I only recently rewatched it after so many years and recognized him.

I have watched Two for the road to pay tribute to Finney after his death, and now I'm learning Stanley Donen just passed away... :cry: :cry: :cry:
Also Two for the road is a wonderful film. Thank you Donen, Finney and also Hepburn and Mancini for everything.
