The Killer

Fassbender is excellent throughout, both on screen and in voiceover. His character speaks confidently in voiceover about the need for detachment and calm, cool, dispassionate professionalism. On-screen, the character appears to be that, except for all the moments the tumult of emotions beneath the surface peek through (which is a lot). Playing that contradiction with such a fine degree of difference is no easy task, and Fassbender again shows that he’s one of our best working actors by threading that needle expertly. 


This piece/episode was produced during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike. Without the labour of the actors currently on strike, the films being discussed here wouldn’t exist.
