character Williams would ever play if you discount One Hour Photo and Death to Smoochy. Vlad is just so damned Russian, and he nails all the bits and pieces. Every little mannerism is that of a Russian taken out of Russia. His performance in this film is very good. It’s not T.S. Garp-good, but he really embodies the character. His interactions with Maria Conchita Alonso are perfect. One thing that he certainly learned from years of stand-up is timing, and while some say that acting is reacting,
