You know what? Throw Nighthawks in there as well. There are others I'm sure, but those are the two that immediately spring to mind.

Well if this isn't a good enough reason for everyone to watch Spetters on repeat, I don't know what is.

In addition to those, I've seen Flesh + Blood, Hobo with a Shotgun, the Merlin NBC miniseries from the '90s, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992), and movies I'm sure everyone here has already seen, Sin City and Batman Begins. I recommend all of them because his presence, charisma and professionalism always elevated the material.

Damn. I watched The Legend of the Holy Drinker, the film he made with Ermanno Olmi, a little over a week ago. Very unlike most of Rutger Hauer's roles, and for that reason alone worth seeing, to witness his range. But it's also a beguiling film just brimming with wonder and generosity. Like watching the hopeful dream of a hopeless dreamer.

RIP Rutger. One of my favourite actors ever since childhood. But I always missed the opportunity to see The Legend of the Holy Drinker, so I'll try and correct that today.

Along with Blade Runner, Turkish Delight is my favourite performance of his. Soldier of Orange and The Hitcher are also must-sees. And I have to see Eureka.

RIP Russi Taylor, voice of Minnie Mouse and various Simpsons characters (Martin Prince, etc.)
Martin Prince was always a way better character than Ralph Wiggum and I'm not willing to hear any counterarguments

I know we've had many discussions about Peter Fonda's merits as an actor, but I just wanted to say that The Hired Hand, the movie he directed after Easy Rider, is a great hidden gem out of the western genre, a tender hypnotic tale like you have seen very few of. Not perfect, but definitely interesting. Also features a great performance by American treasure Warren Oates.

Yes. He totally fitted the part, or, I should rather say, the part fitted him.

Whether it was based on Terry Melcher or Bert Schneider (likely both), Fonda had intimate insight on the role.
