The World's Fastest Indian (2005)****
A textbook example of how to carry a film. Sir Anthony Hopkins delivers a towering performance, lifting the whole picture to a level it really doesn't belong in. The direction is shabby, the script is weak in a number of scenes, but the supporting cast is generally fine. It's reminiscent of The Straight Story and often hits that high mark, thanks to Hopkins. His performance ranks up there with George C. Scott's in Patton as far as I'm concerned. Brilliant.
