chris cooper

Re-watched "Lone Star" this weekend. That is such a damn fine movie. Chris Cooper is just about perfect in it. And yet it wouldn't be until Adaptation that I actually learned his name. I guess that ten years ago a subtle, understated performance like that didn't make enough of an impression on me. I suspect it's different now, though that's hard to prove. Even to just my own satisfaction. Still, I feel that getting older--and therefore more more low key myself--has made me more appreciative of that sort of portrayal.
