I moved the following quote from the KILL BILL thread:
[quote]This is really the wrong thread in which to discuss Four Rooms, but Tim Roth’s performance wasn’t excessive. It was exactly what the part needed (considering it was a mostly silent role) in my opinion.[/quote]
I found him to be mincing around and shamelessly hamming the character up. The only time I enjoyed him in the film was in the Tarantino section where his character actually had a compelling enough situation where he could engage in the dramatic context of the scene as opposed to trying to kill time with awkward slapstick antics.
And for the record, I mildly enjoyed the Rodriguez short, thoroughly enjoyed the Tarantino section and couldn’t stand the first two shorts. I felt sorry for Tim Roth that he had to hold it together with that very confused performance.
