Ani, I suggest this nice and positive HC review be added to the archive, even if the reviewer has some downvotes for Our Man:

Keanu also shines in a scene where the stage director commands him to bring out his emotions and stop merely reading lines. Is this Reeves responding to his critics? Is he saying with this small role, “Look. I can do this. Just let me try.”?


... maybe. he might ;)

Thanks, LucaM, that was an unusually thorough review.

Ani, is this worthy of addition into the archive, you think?

/o\\ I'm really trying not to add reviews unless they're particularly insightful with regards to Keanu and/or the film, because most end up getting repetitive - describing the plot, giving their opinion, and so on, plus there's no end to the number of reviews out there. Also, while people can find movie reviews for a particular movie fairly easily, it's not so much the case for people looking for articles/interviews for a particular actor, and I'm trying to make the archive more of the latter, where the focus is more on Keanu than on his movies.

So I won't add the whole thing, but I'll add a quote from there to the site:

"Whether playing a super hero or a weary working class drone, Keanu Reeves brings an everyman aura to his roles. His approach may be somewhat vanilla, but his anti-showboat acting method allows his fellow actors ample room to display their thespian skills."

It's under the quotes now, acting section.

You're right, Ani. There's an abundance of reviews out there. I don't even add links to them here unless the writer has put some thought into it besides rehashing what everybody else has written.

This last one was a bit more thorough than most, but I suppose it lacks the insight regarding Keanu and/or the movie that would make it a more obvious candidate for the archive.

What we need now is a magazine or two doing in-depth interviews with Our Man. Those ones have been way too few and far between lately. But I guess he'll have to make another mainstream movie for that to happen. :-/

Yesss.

And a photoshoot. It's been ages since the last one. :(

IMHO Reeves "shines" every moment he is onscreen.

Hmmmm. Is there anything we can do about this media drought? Which magazines have been the most active in interviewing Our Man through the years? Maybe we could e-mail bomb some of them with demands for more coverage?

Oh, we do need a new photoshoot. Long overdue. And his hair and beard look perfect right about now. Some good high-def pix might even give us a glimpse of the elusive Little Critters!

Well, lot of us think vanilla is delicious. And it does enhance other flavors considerably!

By the way, great site.
