#667: Darkest Hour / Top 5 Gary Oldman Performances
« on: February 10, 2018, 12:32:04 PM »


In the 30 years since his turn as the temperamental Sid Vicious in Alex Cox's '86 punk biopic "Sid and Nancy," Gary Oldman has brought an intense commitment - sometimes flamboyant, theatrical level of commitment - to dozens of memorable roles. This week, Adam and Josh review Oldman's Oscar-nominated turn as Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's DARKEST HOUR and share a top 5 devoted to the chameleonic actor's most essential cinematic creations.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Is Oldman's age that far off from WW2 Churchill?

I first encountered Oldman in Stephen Frears' "Prick Up Your Ears," so I was surprised at the lack of any mention. Then again, I'm a lot older than everyone.
