Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
I have to admit, I had no idea what the movie (documentary) was about when I went to see it. It was part of the Frightfest line-up in 2011 and the title did sound very intriguing. Plus a friend told me, if he'd only watch one movie from the whole Festival, it would be this one. I guess you can say he is a Naschy fan.
While I have seen him (and the recent Valdemar Legacy does not do him justice), I'm not a scholar of his work, nor could I tell you many things about his movies. But this documentary is able to fill in some blanks, even for those who haven't heard of the guy. A bit of reading prior to watching this might come a long way, but this is still a very compassionate portray of a man, who lived his dream.
