I just saw Bernie. I've never joined a fan club or sent fan mail, but I hope Jack Black hears how my opinion of him has improved drastically. Not only did he demonstrate a brilliant performance, nuanced with a subtle comic falir, and he also gave a truly compassionate portrayal of Bernie Thiede. The film's direction and screenwriting was excellent, and supporting actors were outstanding. I was also very impressed by Jack Black's voice. I had no idea he had such range and beauty. Thank you, Mr. Black, for bringing this man's story to the general public with dignity.
