Johnny Handsome reviews

Mickey Rourke has to be one of the greatest, yet most under-rated,American actors alive today. This film proves it. He plays thischaracter with layers and a depth few could accomplish or wouldeven dare. Unfortunately, most people regard his personal life(and abrasive personality itself) with such disdain that they refuseto fairly judge his professional accomplishments.Rourke plays a grotesquely facially disfigured man who's life ofridicule, non-existent home-life, and resultant self-guilt have ledhim to a life of crime. Nothing original there, I'll admit. But onemust watch Rourke's subtle portrayal to see not a man of rage, asmost actors would give, and be expected of, from the audience, buta man quietly locked into his world of pain. The way he holds hiscigarette from the top, so as to cover part of his face; the downwardtilt of his head, eyes averted from anyone's gaze; or the curt, quietspeaking so as not to draw too much attention. The example ofspeech is in itself remarkable. Not only does Rourke affect asevere speech impediment as the disfigured Johnny Handsome,but he then takes on a new one as a man who is now capable ofproper diction, but who is completely unused to being able tospeak properly. And he is constant in his portrayal throughout.The story is simple but good, driven with excellent visual editing,and a wonderful sound track (provided by Ry Cooder), that reallysets the pacing. The cast is largely wonderful, as well, with quite afew recognizable "stars". Forest Whitaker as the sympathetic butdriven and demanding doctor, Lance Henrikson and Ellen Barkinin amazing performances as two completely greedy "scum-bags",and Morgan Freeman, in a real role reversal, as a rotten, tauntingparole officer. Probably the only weak link in the cast is ElizabethMcGovern, who's attempted Louisiana accent never holds up andover-all acting just suffices.This film remains a favorite of mine that I watch every now andagain, always enjoying it both for the excitingly building tension ofthe story, and the great performances (and performers) litteredthroughout the film. If you like this film, I also suggest "TheElephant Man", by David Lynch (for the life-with-disfigurementaspects), or "The Warriors", by Walter Hill, as a great, earlyexample of this same director's work.8/10 Mickey Rourke at his best!
