    I thought he was in awesome in Labyrinth.

    I’ve been remembering how great he was in The Prestige. He played Nikola Tesla, and there was a big build-up, across several scenes, for his first appearance. I thought he’d go big, famous inventor as rock star, but instead he underplayed it. It was obviously the director’s decision to play it that way, but he carried it off beautifully.
