[quote=“Sgt. Geoi Donowitz”] [quote=“Ordell Rodriguez”]It was great how into it he got. Folding his hands, rubbing the table. Made me want to see him act. Him as John Brown, with an awkward pause between him and his southern civil war era Mia.[/quote]
I just like to see him act. I don't think he's a bad actor. I think those few roles he had in the films of "smaller" directors, that were afraid to direct him, really gave him a bad rep. He was EXCELLENT in FDTD, Desparado, and PT. And I think he was great in Four Rooms as well. He brings a lot of himself into each role, but his delivery can't be fucked with when he's working with someone that will give him direction. And fuck anyone who doesn't agree with me. I firmly believe that Quentin CAN act.[/quote]
He can sort of act in genre. But put him in a film that requires serious acting, and he won’t deliver. There have only been a handful of directors who can really act. And those two writer/directors are Orson Welles and John Huston.
Orson Welle’s best role was as Charles Foster Kane. And John Huston as Noah Cross in Chinatown.
If I had to judge any of Quentin’s performances, I’d say his most decent role is in Dusk. The rest are more like cameo roles. Quentin is no actor.
