    Ok, so I saw 'Eye of the Beholder' last night. It was on t.v, when there wasn't much else, and to see more about Ewan's acting, I sat down and watched it.

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I knew Ewan was good before SW, and knew he was good in 'Trainspotting', but this movie has put him into the upper echelons of acting in my books.

    The story was GREAT, and Ewan does an amazing job playing a shy, obsessed, twisted, longing 'guardian angel'. It was quite remarkable because of the range involved. In Trainspotting, he's a wacked out junkie. In SW, he's the heroic, jump-out-the-window-without-thinking-, calm, swave, collected, cool master. But in this film, he did something so unlike those two.

    Anyone interested in a great flick? Pick this one up.

    Anyone know another great flick with Ewan, non SW related? LET ME KNOW!!!!!

    I haven't seen that one, oh no! I MUST see it NOW! Besides Moulin Rouge, Ewan's Trainspotting and The Pillow Book are incredible - yes, there are nude scenes, but even if you don't go for that, they are still fabulous to watch.

    Wow Wolf. Thanks a lot. I remembered ones like "A life less Ordinary", and "Emma", but there were a few on the list I didn't even know about.
