out" things about Dean would you include? And how do you think that
would have affected Johnny's portrayal of Dean? Have fun!

I would have liked to see a bit
more in the movie about Corso's relationship to women and his
vulnerability. The scene with Liana Taillefer (Lena Olin) was
definitely not a love scene, but one of manipulation on her part that
didn't work. Was he even capable of love? We never really see into
Dean's soul. Johnny has such a way of letting the audience know what
he is feeling with his eyes, and I think they missed out by not
allowing him to use that talent in this movie. He tries, boy he
tries, but there is not much emotionally for him to work with other
than fear, control, and surprise. They also could have let him be a
bit more humerous. A sense of humor does not mean you cannot be
manipulative, it just means you can enjoy the hoops you put people
through, and Johnny does subtle humor so well.

I'd really like to know what was going thru Polanski's head about
Dean Corso?...........why did he want to keep him so cold and yet
cast an actor that is known for his sensitivity to "outcasts"
and "outsiders!"

Maybe Polanski wanted a "challenge": to see if he could keep JD
under his thumb. He always seemed rather power hungry to me. Does
that make sense?

I definitely agree with this. There was a good amount of dry
humor in the book (of course, a lot of it dealt with literary
references and kept going over my head, much as I tried to
remember Perez-Reverte's reminders!) I only finally finished the
book this morning (bad girl, I know!) and haven't gotten a chance
to watch the movie again yet. I seem to remember a few
moments where Johnny displayed some wit, but overall the
movie seemed a bit long and dry- more humor would've helped
move the pace along. As far as Polanski being power-hungry,
wasn't there a quote from Johnny himself somewhere where he
referred to him as a "dictator"? I seem to remember this...
