I've always depended on the kindness of strangers
To clarify, I mean they speak a non-English language on screen.

Gian Maria Volonte
Toshiro Mifune
Alain Delon

"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."

Mistress of Sick Gore
such as Mads Mikkelsen in his Danish, German and French films?
Never talk smack about Star-Lord!!!
It is not his fault and he's not an idiot!

After all, horror is usually concerned in some way with death, and romance is concerned with love, but love and death and how one is bound up in the other is the very essence of gothic.

Max von Sydow
Bruno Ganz
Yves Montand
Daniel Auteuil
Javier Bardem
Peter Stormaire
Depardieu has surely been in some of the best french films during his prime, but I'm not sure he is as consistent as the others; although, you have to be doing something right if you have appeared in around 200 films.
Lena Olin
Juliette Binoche
Isabella Adjani when she has a good script

Shifting through the shadows

How would you guys rate The Trilogy? I figure if I start, I gotta finish, and just wanna see who likes it.
It's the greatest Trilogy of all time in my opinion. Either that of the Before / After trilogy. There is a slight dip with White, but the whole thing is a masterpiece. The end of Red is mind blowing.

I struggle to choose which I like best - Red or Blue, but Binoche's performance in Blue probably wins it by a tiny margin.
