Emerson – The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things
Asia Argento’s 2004 The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things is one of those dire indie projects that people talk about more because it’s dark, depressing, and extremely messed up than they do because it’s an okay movie. Nonetheless, the drama about a drug addict mother and her often abandoned and abused son has quite an extraordinary cast including Peter Fonda, Ben Foster, Winona Ryder, and Jeremey Renner of all people. Here, Renner plays one of Argento’s character Sarah’s many boyfriends, though he takes things to a new low in his treatment of her son, Jeremiah (played by Dylan and Cole Sprouse). Throughout his brief appearance, Renner plays perhaps his most unsavory character of his career.
