Cannes Review: Bosnian Aid Worker Comedy 'A Perfect Day' Starring Benicio Del Toro, Tim Robbins & Olga Kurylenko

18 May 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Benicio Del Toro is a funny kind of movie star. He broke out thanks to his deeply weird, scene-stealing turn in "The Usual Suspects," and ever since has had the kind of career that's lived up to that performance — he's generally chosen to appear in offbeat movies.

What set Walken apart from the pack was the sense that he was in on the joke, that he was happily playing up his cadence and his dancing purely for our benefit, and that it had zero bearing on his actual (and profound) ability to leave that stuff behind when his work required him to do so. Yet that doesn’t dilute the pure pleasure of watching Walken marry those two ideals – the hammy Walken, the serious Walken – into one irrepressibly charming character in Robert Edwards’ darling “When I Live My Life Over Again.” Read More: »
