Kevin Spacey on Jeff Goldblum in ‘Adam Resurrected’

Actors champion fellow colleagues in 2008 performances

In the opening frame of Paul Schrader’s film “Adam Resurrected,” Jeff Goldblum’s wandering eye turns out to be a metaphor for the sprawling journey of this film’s central character and much more than a simple party trick performed by his circus master skill. His performance as Adam in this wonderfully weird and fascinating world of Noah Stollman’s screenplay gives Goldblum one of the most complex and moving roles of his career. His dazzling display of magic as well as his absolute believability in possessing powers beyond the norm are remarkable; as we learn the level of his guilt and humiliation as a prisoner at the hands of Willem Dafoe’s Nazi commandant, his sudden bursts of emotional terror, pain and physical anguish never falter in showing us a man who cannot wipe his humiliation from his memory or his face.
