Ian Holm has been one of my favorite actors for a long while.
He was in a movie called The Sweet Hereafter
, which is not an easy movie to watch at all. It is literally the saddest movie I have ever seen.
Ian Holm's character is basically a bottomless well of sadness. It's one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever seen. Here's a clip:
That's not even the worst part of the movie. His performance in that movie should be my never tired of watching, but I can't really watch it. Basically my favorite piece of acting I really don't want to see again.
