Fiennes runs away with HP4

Senior New York Times movie reviewer Manohla Dargis says the high point of the new Harry Potter movie is a transcendent performance by Ralph Fiennes as uber-baddie Lord Voldemort.

Dargis argues that the dishy Fiennes is actually at his best playing evil psychos, and anyone who saw him as the mad killer in Red Dragon (the second filming of Thomas Harris' novel of the same name, the one that first introduced Hannibal Lecter; the first movie was 1986's Manhunter, also very good) is unlikely to disagree.
