On the cover of today’s NOW: Robert goddamn Duvall, ladies and gentlemen. This one was pure pleasure, both to research and to write; play the audio clips to understand how much fun it is just to sit and listen to the man speak. (I especially love his pronunciation of the word spoon.)
I also take a look at his five best roles as part of the package — though this particular Top 5 could have gone to a Top 15. And here’s my TIFF interview with Duvall’s equally engaging co-star Robert Downey Jr., just because you’ve been good all week.
And in the film section proper, I preview the Reel Indie Film Festival, which takes over the Royal as of next Tuesday. Because I am a comprehensive sort of fellow.
