The star of the show was Spacey. His head-to-head battle of intellects with Palmenteri was a joy to watch unfold. The two characters trade upper-hands throughout the interrogation. Leigh is a perfect candidate for how unexpected her acting decisions are. She can play absolute crazy, alongside playful menace, and emotional drama. Her skills make her a perfect player for this complicated tale. Leigh would be totally captivating in this astounding role. Plus, how great would it be to continue her Tarantino induced renaissance with a fellow QT cohort with Grier. I would love to see these strong women bash wits.
The greatest trick Verbal ever pulled was convincing the world he wasn’t Keyser Söze. This role has come to define the film and as such, in a reboot would be the most important as it’s the one we’d all be watching most intently. The thing about Spacey that always (slightly) bothered me was his age. He seemed perfect as Verbal but too young as Söze. With Mirren, her age would be highly beneficial and lend a great deal of authenticity to both parts. She’s a magnificent actor and just think of the great contest of wits between her and Kim Yujin. This has to be made.
