It isn’t often that the sixth movie in a franchise is the best installment. But it’s now the case with Mission: Impossible. Fallout is exhilarating and keeps your heart pounding the whole way through. When Brad Bird showed audiences what was possible with the M:I franchise in Ghost Protocol, it seemed like that was the best we would get. But Christopher McQuarrie debatably outdid him with Rogue Nation, and now has outdone himself with Fallout.
Up to this point, Andrew Garfield’s career can be divided into three sections: supporting actor, Spider-Man, and lead actor, with Boy A catapulting him into these sections. This week, I’m taking a look at his supporting roles in Lions for Lambs, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Never Let Me Go, and The Social Network, with today being devoted to the first two. Each one of these roles is very different from the others, but they all inform of the kind of roles and ideas that Garfield is interested in taking on.
