The methods with which Javier Bardem inflicts villainy on the world aren't perhaps the most original in the script. But it's all made up for by his downright unsettling screen presence. A tortured character with a motive and a total disconnection from reality, he is very weird and very, very funny. His second villainy masterclass after No Country For Old Men, this is Bardem recognising the opportunity to have fun with his character and running with it. Simply brilliant.
