Johnny Depp is Awesome in The Professor!!
I really loved seeing Johnny Depp without makeup and in the role of a normal guy who is trying to come to terms with his mortality. He is I think how most of us would want to handle being given the worst kind of news- screw it all, let’s have a drink, let’s smoke some pot, let’s go do all of the things you’re not supposed to do, let’s go Live. He’s hilarious in a crass sort of way, honest, sensitive, sentimental towards his daughter and best friend, reflective, has some regrets, angry in moments feeling let down by God or the universe for his plight and just very real. You want to live vicariously through him. He teaches his students and the people around him to live life fully and seems to shake everyone up around him. I really enjoyed watching him and the good thing about The Professor is that there are no scenes of people huddled around a hospital bed, crying. I think it was really well acted, well written, everyone did a great job and I really loved seeing Johnny in a totally different role than what we have seen recently. The Professor is completely relatable and anyone who sees this will find something that reminds them of themselves, a friend, a family member, a life event having to do with Cancer. Even though it’s emotionally- charged, I thought that it was a positive and uplifting story and I had a lot of fun watching Professor Richard. It should be on the big screen!!!
