    RE: Crazy Batshit Performances, you included ‘EVERYONE’ except Gary Oldman’s corrupt cop in Leon: The Professional.
    His manic, frankly fucked up, performance felt so out-of-place in the movie in which naunced, but equally weird characters roamed New York.

    He did manage to be the best thing in it though.
