More Description


Harvey Keitel has made his menacing presence felt in some of the greatest cult movies ever, from Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets and Taxi Driver to Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. with over sixty movies to his name Keitel is one of the most sought-after actors in the world. Yet, unlike so many of his peers he has remained loyal to the world of independent and groundbreaking films, repeatedly surprising us with risky performances such as those in Bad Lieutenant, The Last Temptation of Christ, The Piano and Smoke. Keitel's willingness to challenge himself and support small films has inspired a generation of young actors and directors, helping to reinvigorate independent film and giving us a gritty, refreshing screen icon--a throwback to greats such as Lee Marvin and Robert Mitchum.Keitel's rollercoaster life is also unique, a story unike any other in filmdom's annals. A kid on the street in Jewish Brooklyn, a stint in the Marines, a brief career as a court stenographer, an encounter with Scorsese and De Niro, firing from the lead in Apocalypse Now, self-imposed Hollywood exile in the eighties, a triumphant return to prominence in the great films of this decade, Keitel throughout has exemplified a painful and unflinching search for honesty and self knowledge which smolders and flares in his performances.
