Today’s reprieve comes in the form of a brief clip including the always excellent Christoph Waltz discussing the Meisner acting technique for a BBC documentary. He talk about the power of repetition and uses the words “dill pickle” as his example. Watching the actor effortlessly flick between various emotions and moods that are reminiscent of his the work seen in his iconic roles in Inglourious Basterds and the most recent Django Unchained. This clip warms the cold recesses of my iron heart, and if you have a soul it’ll make you feel better too.
