Don Juan DeMarco
A flat glass of bubbly in which Brando, with dyed yellow hair and an out-of-puff delivery, plays psychiatrist to a young fantasist (the drowsy Johnny Depp) who may not be the real Don Juan, may not have made love to over a thousand women by the age of twenty-one, but who nevertheless may possess the secret of life. The psychiatrist's rejuvenation ("What happened to all the celestial fire that used to light our way?") is not matched by the corpulent actor's. (His first line is a classic of the pot calling the kettle: "Hey, you're puttin' on a little weight, there.") The writer and director, Jeremy Leven, is more concerned to instruct than to amuse, but no more adept at it. With Faye Dunaway. 1995.
