"The most important moments of your life"

Javier Bardem, in my humble opinion, is the world's greatest actor. I reached this conclusion after watching "Golden Balls", "Before Night Falls" and, just now, the brilliant "Sea Inside". His versatility is astounding and his ability to inhabit roles is simply mesmerising. If you want to watch art on film, watch him.

I just realised what I'm in awe of, with Bardem. He has a reservoir of feeling that he can tap into. He feels things and reacts to them which means that he isn't really acting. As someone who has trouble feeling things (or trusting feelings), that's amazing to me.
