what?! It was terrible! It was very funny and everything, but he was telling Orange to ‘shut the fuck up because everytime you TALK you loose more BLOOD’. He even slapped him! Not exactly the caring Mr. White we all know and love.
I agree. I was like… wtf? Where’s the compassion?
On the other hand, I really did like the white/joe scene with buscemi and the other actor. In a way, I prefer that to the scene in the actual movie.
But, it’s all a matter of chemistry. Keitel and Roth could pull off the compassion, whereas if buscemi or tarantino had been white, the kind of father-son dynamic wouldn’t be there at all and the compassion wouldn’t come off.
In a perfect world, the Reservoir Dogs cast and the Trainspotting cast would be interchangeable… you could select an actor and mix and match both casts. That’d be great.
