10 years of Flick Filosopher: a Law of movie stardom

Who says Hollywood is in decline? (Okay, I guess I’ve said that more that once…) From my review of Enemy at the Gates:

When film fans complain that movie stars just ain’t what they used to be, I can only imagine that they have never seen Jude Law on film. True, Law looks like he stepped out of a magazine with a name like Silver Screen Idols, cover date September 12, 1942. But he emits that Golden Age radiance, too — a preternatural ease onscreen, a larger-than-life aura, a dazzling presence that evokes glorious black-and-white films about people wearing evening clothes and sipping martinis and making terribly witty observations about life. Law has It the way that Cary Grant had It.
