Robert Downey Jr. – A MAN Capably Using The Forces Of IRONy
The above artwork is by Sam Taylor-Wood.
“Irony is the bringing together of contradictory truths to make out of the contradiction a new truth with a laugh or a smile . . . and I confess that a truth must come with one or the other, or I count it as false and a denial of the very nature of humanity itself.”
– spoken by the characer of Jane Austen, from the film “Becoming Jane,” a very good film.

If you’ve admired the acting ability of Robert Downey Jr. for many years, since his roles in movies like “Less Than Zero,”
“Chaplin,” or “Two Girls and a Guy,” then you may know some of his remarkable acting gifts.
He plays the part of Tony Stark sublimely in the new Iron Man movie. He is on fire. Every risk his character takes is amplified by the authenticity of Downey’s channeled experiences. The movie is a delight, and I highly recommend it. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
I also want to recommend the current GQ cover article on Robert Downey Jr. It is exceptionally well written and incredibly insightful and revealing. If you have ever admired or followed Robert Downey Jr., I highly recommend the GQ article.
