Best. Iago. Ever.

A compelling and convincing portrait of evil- not a disgruntled office-seeker, not an affectless psycho... a supple, plausible, cool, and calculated sociopath. The scene at the end, where he stands ignoring his wound, with a satisfied smirk on his lips as all the horror and carnage is revealed, then stares rapturously as Othello dies, then struggles to feast his eyes for just a bit longer as he is dragged off to his fate... it left us with chills. Avery Brooks was mighty fine, but we gave our standing ovation for Patrick Page.
