my passion for willem dafoe
4 December 2002 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

this movie screamed at me from the shelf at hollywood video. as soon as i read the back cover, i knew i was a goner. my passion for willem dafoe as an actor resembles his character's passion for passion. what an incredible ensemble cast of superb talent! dafoe, lena olin and miranda richardson must all have been in dire need of funds to sign up for such a terrible farce of a film. part costume drama part soft core porn (under the pretense of a foreign film) the image of his glutes bumping up and down will forever haunt and torment me. the 360 of willem and lena olin's embrace is worthy of being compared to orson welles.
