Other than he was really scary, what makes Fiennes far and away better?
What Fiennes was able to do with his eyes. You look into those eyes and you see no emotion, no remorse, no pity. You see pure unadulterated evil. That's what elevates his performance in my opinion. The scene between him and Helen Hirsch in the basement of his villa is really tense because you know this guy is a complete and total psychopath but you don't know what he's going to do. He seems calm, cool, very loving toward her. And then, all of a sudden, he turns on a dime and begins to kick her ass.
