Manly, subtle Crowe

“We already knew from The Insider that Crowe was a fine, subtle, vanity-free actor, happy to ruin his looks to play pudgy and useless. But Gladiator and Proof of Life prove that he’s also a great movie star. One is not the same as the other, and the two rarely combine in one actor. Crowe is as manly as Connery and as subtle as Robert Ryan.”
