The Tiger's Tail (2006)
Brendan Gleeson gets the chance to shine when meeting his doppelganger in John Boorman's playful mystery-comedy The Tiger's Tail. The role, as the film, is a nice mix of simplicity and depth, and Boorman finds room for both silly comedy (which often is more silly than comedic, however) and historically resonant drama in this clever little film. It is also nice to see a film as arch-Irish as this, and the performers seem to cherish this identity. Brendan Gleeson doesn't give his most whole-hearted performance, but he is obviously enjoying himself. And Sinéad Cusack's performance is full of emotion.
