can hardly claim that the career of delicate, intense Christopher
Walken has been as remarkable as many predicted after an exceptional
start in the 70s, culminated with his fantastic (and Oscar winning)
performance in Michael Ciminos The
Perhaps has his pursuit of leading man status given him a bit too
many mediocre roles, while he could have profitted more from seeking
more character roles. Still, Christopher Walken has never been in
danger of losing his status as one the most serious, humorous and
potent actors in the business. He's at his best giving life to
mentally unstable, sociopaths to which he often contribute a small
portion implicit humour as well as his trademark dance sequence.
