Pastor Jeff, why do you hate short Belgians?
NY Times had an article on Jean-Claude Van Damme: Hard Body Plays an Old Softie (Himself):
Mr. Van Damme’s more sensitive side is on jaw-dropping display in the movie’s pièce de résistance, a soul-baring six-minute monologue with more emoting than in all his other roles put together. His eyes tearing up and his voice quavering, he reflects on his dreams and failures, and effectively head-butts the fourth wall. (“I truly believe it’s not a movie.”)
As usual, I was way ahead of the curve in discussing his influential talent in this earlier Jean-Claude Van Damme post.
