People upon hearing the name Gérard Depardieu in 2014 begin to cringe as they wonder what crazy act is he up to now? Over the past year he has urinated on a airplane but not in the airplane lavatory, and has revealed that he wanted to be the head of the Crimean winery despite not taking into account that this is not exactly a part-time job. One of the worst things about his public actions is that they take attention away from his spectacular acting which is what he is best known for and what he does incredibly well.
Over the years he has won the Golden Globe Award, been nominated for an Academy Award and has won two Cesar Awards and just when fans might be willing to dismiss his talents he comes forth with another sterling performance.
The trailer of the film "Welcome to New York" has been released and he shows in the trailer and this film why he has earned such acclaim for his acting. The film is about the actions of one man's indiscretion and his consistent, ruthless abuse of power that many observers believe is truly a movie about Dominique Strauss-Kahn but the filmmakers cannot say that and have changed the names to ensure they do not get sued.
He makes the trailer look exceptional and the buzz is his performance is outstanding throughout the entire film as the wealthy financier and incorrigible sex addict who has deemed himself above the law and is unafraid to act without to decency or discretion.
His acting performance brings a spotlight on one man's sense of entitlement and his fearless portrayal of the lead character Devereaux which is "uncompromising in his depiction ... as a loathsome monster governed by his appetites" is deemed mesmerizing by critics such as the Daily Guardian's film Allan Hunter.
Gérard Depardieu is considered one of the great actors of his generation and this is shown and illustrated with his spectacular performance in "Welcome to New York".
