Wick

Regarding Wick’s Review
Fair enough on the Downey casting idea. Might not have worked. But the young Downey was a pip.

Regarding Wick’s Review
Easily Froman’s best work. While vastly different from the stage play, Shaeffer’s dialogue is rich, vibrant, and propells the story brilliantly. Shifting from the present of Salieri’s old age to flashbacks of his and Mozart’s life deftly, creating an engaging patchwork that is at once gorgeous and terrifying.
Hulce is at his best as a performer and matches Abraham’s tormnted, vicious portrayal of Salieri with a Mozart that is naive, vulgar, brilliant, and equally tormented. Tim Curry played Mozart on stage, and I think that casting Hulce for the film was genius. And so, Wick, I think Downey wouldn’t have been ablle to flesh out the character as well as Hulce; his si a talent more suited to roles like Chaplin.
This movie never grows old. It is like eating good food or fine wine, and one never tires of it’s brilliance.
