GREENLIGHT #72: The Illusionist (with "The Score" and "Primal Fear")

Ann and Les were simply dazzled by The Illusionist (2006.) They think it is a lovely, intriguiging, magical movie. In particular, they think the lead roles were cast perfectly with Edward Norton playing "The Illusionist" and Rufus Sewell playing the mean and nasty Prince. But they think Paul Giamatti just steals the show outright with his fantastic performance as the conflicted "Inspector Uhl." A real delight, so kudos to director Neil Burger. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, they focus on Edward Norton whom they love and don't think gets enough attention, so Les recommends the sleeper The Score (2001) starring Mr. Norton along with Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando. Ann recommends Mr. Norton in his stunning debut that outshined the wonderful performance of his co-star Richard Gere in Primal Fear (1996.)
