Proof That Being a Chameleon Does Not = Good Acting
Chameleon actors are bad once they are too over the top. Does it really matter if an actress or an actor is not recognizable? If the intentions of an actor/actress does not translate on screen 100%, they are surely giving an awful performance. Jake Gyllenhaal has for a decade been described as a chameleon actor, but even he has his limits. This film proves Cate Blanchett is not an amazing actress because she has limits. What do I consider amazing? Marlon Brando and Daniel Day Lewis of course. Those are the only true chameleons that have never given a terrible performance. All these subpar actors in Hollywood today are just beginners. She's not acting for survival, her mind is about giving a good performance, not survival. It's what modern actors get wrong, the focus on your performance does not equal a good one. Acting is a survival mechanism, so you have to use it like you want to survive.
