The Crimson Rivers - A tough Paris cop who teams up with Jean Reno (Instant Points)
L'Appartemente - A man who is searching for the truth (Mindfuck Film)
Sheitan - A satanic Shepard who is trying to flock in some college sacrifices.
Irreversible - A homophobic bastard who loves cocaine and gay bashing
Derailed - A French smooth-mother-fucker who is a master conman.
These are just some of the many roles he can play. Sheitan was an amazing film in overview but did have its flaws. If it wasn't for Cassel's deep pockets and his ability to fund the film, we wouldn't have seen this macabre masterpiece. Not only does Vincent Cassel and his wife Monica Belluci form an amazing family, but his brother is a part of French rap group ASSASSIN codenamed Rockin Squat.
I highly anticipated his role in Cronenberg's new crime masterpiece EASTERN PROMISES and after viewing, he made that film. Kirill was an amazing character. Not only did he handle the homosexual undertones with class, but he also made such a monster a character you actually feel for. Its really amusing to watch a Frenchman playing a Russian, Jew, Frenchie, and a cartoon character off of Shrek. Such a wide range of capabilities shouldn't go unrewarded.
Vincent Cassel is an amazing actor and indeed one of the finest. His name alone is worth a rent.
