The Bourne Identity

The Bourne Identity (Doug Liman, 2002)

A man is picked up by a fishing boat, bullet-riddled and suffering from amnesia, before racing to elude assassins and regain his memory.

Matt Damon, Franka Potente, Chris Cooper, Clive Owen

This is a very exciting film, paradoxically, because its star has the least interesting face of any actor I can think of. Matt Damon betrays no trace of any kind of emotion or intelligence. He’s not even good-looking. Why does he get the work?
