Obituary: Richard Jordan
Monday 04 October 1993
Jordan's role as the psychopath using the newspaperman Kurt Russell as a confidant to his murders, as the storms brew over Miami, in The Mean Season (1985), is an excellent lesson to any aspiring actor of how such a character should be crafted. Rather than the flashy view of a psychopath as offered by Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs, Jordan provides a character of far greater depth, full of nervous energy, but ultimately fallible due to over-confidence.
His performance, coupled with Frank Tidy's fine photography, provide a chilling animosity that makes the film his most memorable for all the right reasons.
