This is the second of my two favorite scenes, as mentioned in my previous review, I just think it is a brilliantly made chase scene, it was made in 1991 and I still don’t think I have seen a better foot chase scene, as it immerses you into the actual chase, following the tracks of both Swayze and Reeves. You can even hear at points Reeve’s deep breathing, showing he is struggling, giving you an idea of the level of fitness of both men.
That’s “Paul Mounet”, a french actor, who “died” in 1922.
His body never was found.
Then, look at this:
An unknown man, painted in 1530 by Parmigianino.
I KNEW IT.
That explains why he’s sad. He’s cursed with immortality, and everyone he ever loves will die in his infinite lifetime.
This changes everything I ever thought about his performance in Dracula. And also, I wonder whether when he played Ted in “Bill & Ted” in the first film, whether he recommended the looks and style of each historical figure, as he was around at the time….
