Winner of the Best Actor award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Banderas gives a subtly-shaded performance as a director who believes he can no longer direct, who has withdrawn into himself as he feels the increasing physical deprivations of age, and who turns to the past by delving into memories and regrets as he enters what may be the last act of his life.

Banderas is terrific as a stand-in for director Pedro Almodóvar (with whom he had collaborated numerous times over the past 40 years), who has conjured a story that is ultimately positive and resistant to doubt, as his protagonist focuses on the aging of the body (which can defeat the artistic will) and the power of memory (which can rescue it).

In an interview with Stephen Colbert on CBS’ “The Late Show,” Banderas talked about how his heart attack in 2017 left him much more uninhibited in expressing his emotions.

In the scene below, Dalton plays a western villain holding a young kidnapped girl (Julia Butters) for ransom. DiCaprio does a wonderful job of playing an actor improvising and trying to gauge how much is too much when portraying a boo-hiss evil character. At the end, he gets what every actor must crave.

In Noah Baumbach’s dramedy about the dissolution of a marriage and the ugly psychic wounds that are peeled back as a divorce inches closer to legal finality, Adam Driver plays Charlie, a theatre director who is resistant to the notion that his wife Nicole (Scarlett Johansson), an actress, has justifiable reasons to leave him.
