Jeff Bridges has recently praises Christian Bale role as Russell Blaze in Out of the Furnace to Variety!
Christian Bale’s portrayal of the complicated Russell Baze in Scott Cooper’s “Out of the Furnace” is outstanding.
Christian always delivers, but I found this performance especially engaging.
What I love about his work is that he consistently creates characters that are real.
He gives the audience the sense they are a fly on the wall, watching something that isn’t meant to be seen.
Scott Cooper’s wonderful original screenplay and direction have given us the opportunity to see remarkable performances by the entire cast, and Christian, leading the pack, draws us so beautifully into this story with his powerful, subtle performance, that this movie is a one-of-a-kind jewel. It’s the best movie I’ve seen in a long time.
