Title: Sir Ben
Post by: sam on August 10, 2014
This new edition of screenplay (https://www.notanothercyclingforum.net/acf/index.php?topic=51560.0) pays homage to an actor who so memorably inhabited the skin of saint and sinner: Sir Ben. Kingsley's astonishing range allowed him to play both Mahatma Gandhi in the epic story of Nobel Peace Prize loser Gandhi and Don Logan in the menace-fest Sexy Beast, not to mention himself, as luvvie and defenceless kitten, in an episode of The Sopronos.

Sexy Beast, which also starred Ray Winstone (https://www.notanothercyclingforum.net/index.php?topic=649.msg10048#msg10048) as the poor sod who just wants to be allowed to fix his pool without too much hassle, and Ian McShane as Al Swearengen (https://prettygoodbritain.com/wp/?p=1745) reincarnated, gave Sir the opportunity to shine as the mesmerizing sociopath who so clearly wanted to break free from Gandhi's pyjamas.

Watching Don Logan is like waiting for a cobra to strike as you dangle, say, a defenceless kitten in front of it. He belongs in a lineup with the usual suspects, (https://www.notanothercyclingforum.net/index.php?topic=88.msg236#msg236) though he'd probably call them all cunts – has that word been trademarked by Bradley Wiggins (https://prettygoodbritain.com/wp/?p=1686) yet?

In addition to his Oscar, Grammy, BAFTA, Golden Globes, and bump up the food chain granted by the Queen, allow me to present the ultimate accolade: a Top Trumps card
