Films ~ Michael Sheen:

  1. The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, directed by Jonathan Newman
  2. Brad’s Status, written & directed by Mike White // Ben Stiller’s MC was esp insufferable //
  3. Bright Young Things, directed by Stephen Fry
  4. The Damned United*, directed by Tom Hooper {2x – I needed the subtitles}
  5. Tron: Legacy, directed by Joseph Kosinski
  6. Wilde, directed by Brian Gilbert

 

* Pelé, Brazilian superstar, piqued my interest in soccer as a kid in the 1970s. So (unlike Brad’s Status), the subject matter was inherently interesting.  But this movie broke my heart, twice.    Michael Sheen utterly convinces as an intense partner/friend who can’t get out of his own way.
