Oh, Man, I'm Really Under the Gun


As much as I was impressed by Roman Polanski's 2002 movie The Pianist, I was distracted in the later scenes by how much Adrien Brody, with his shaggy, unwashed hair and scraggly, unkempt beard, resembled Adam Duritz of Counting Crows (right). By the end of the film, when Brody is finally able to play the piano once again, I expected him to break into a little "Round Here."

I can affirmatively say that I did not have that problem.

One difference I noted when I was looking for a photo of Duritz to post: Brody's character, in the middle of the Holocaust, is of course skinny as a rail, whle Adam Duritz is fat fat fat, and getting fatter.
