Early Reviews For Johnny Depp's Movie Minamata Praise 'Unrecognizable' Actor

At the Minamata press convention in Berlin, Johnny Depp mentioned (through Variety) he had a “strange fascination” with W. Eugene Smith and his pictures, which was enhanced when he “read a bit about his life and what he’d gone through, what he’d experienced, what he’d sacrificed to capture those moments, to capture those photos.” Depp mentioned the Minamata scandal was “a story that needed to be told” and he wished to “harness the power of media or cinema or art and use it to open people’s eyes.”
