From Gandhi to the Great Zamboni

Ben Kingsley lowered his aesthetic standards bar to ground level long before that interview with Richard von Busack (see previous post for gory details).

            For your consideration:

Harem, an unseen 1985 epic, a Stockholm Syndrome in the Sahara film about a woman (Nastassja Kinski) who is captured by an Arabian sheik but learns to love her days in the seraglio (i.e., a mass-cult version of The Sheltering Sky, if the masses had been allowed to see it). Kingsley presumably plays the sheik, named Selim.

            Species (1995), in which he played a scientist who purses a deadly, sexy alien named Sil (Natasha Henstridge) as part of a team of extraterrestrial experts that includes Michael Madsen, Alfred Molina, Forest Whitaker (as an empath of sorts—“She … walked … this way”) and Marg Helgenberger. Memorable line from IMDb: “We decided to make it female so it would be more docile and controllable.”

         Spooky House (2000): He plays somebody named the Great Zamboni. Nuff said.

            … and finally, Sir Ben Kingsley, Oscar winner, lent his name and presence in 2005 to BloodRayne, director Uwe Boll’s infamously bad vampire movie with a stellar cast of bad-movie icons: Udo Kier, Meat Loaf, Michael Paré, Bill Zane, Michelle Rodriguez and, yes, Michael Madsen again.
