David Suchet Most Live
7 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

For his portrayal of Naji, Iraqi Minister of Information, David Suchet deserves a best supporting actor award. His work is at once riveting and sublime. The whole story plays across his eyes. He infuses an unsympathetic character with warmth, intelligence, and humor. Especially in the context of current events, what more important work can an actor do than present so many colors of humanity in those we perceive as a faceless enemy.
