Alan as Grigori Rasputin

Quote :
The HBO tv-film Rasputin is interesting, with a spectacular cast featuring some of the greatest actors of the British stage: David Warner as Dr. Botkin, and Ian McKellen as the Tsar, are especially memorable. The clothes are near-replicas of those worn by the Romanovs, and the locations appear authentic. Voice-overs narrate the story from Alexis's point of view at the beginning and at the end, but not consistently throughout the film. I would have preferred no voice-overs since to me film is primarily a visual medium. The boy Freddie Finlay, a wonderful actor, was very good, however.

Alan Rickman portrays Rasputin with great emotional force, and his scenes with Freddie Finlay are very moving. Mr. Rickman does a wonderful job of adding a human dimension to a character who is a mystery. He uses body movement to great effect. His Rasputin is tragic, funny, sexy, and appalling. He deservedly won a Golden Globe, a SAG award, and an Emmy for this role. Still, I would prefer to see him in roles where he is not playing a nut, a villain, or in a period piece.

Rickmaniacs will like his seduction scene, and the table dance ("I am a great man").
