    I really enjoyed Albert Finney - Big Fish and A Good Year come immediately to mind

    Also looked at his IMBD and he was the Judge in Pink Floyd's The Wall movie, didn't know that

    Aw, no!

    I just watched Tom Jones recently. Terrific film and a great performance from Jones.

    RIP

    Looker holds up surprisingly well as a technothriller today. I rewatched it a couple of years back.

    While watching Tom Jones, I noticed that Finney as a young man bore a pretty strong resemblance to Ewan MacGregor...I forgot they played the younger/older versions of the same character in Big Fish.

    Probably my favorite Coen Bros. film.
