Voldemort in the last movie

The only thing wrong with Ralph Fiennes's portrayal of Voldemort in Harry Potter movie 8 was the numerous times when you could see on his face the kinds of emotions that a sociopath just isn't capable of. Especially after killing Harry. The look on his face in the following scenes before Harry got up again should have had Voldemort ecstatic with triumph, even whooping with joy. I can quite clearly imagine his face contorted with mad glee. Instead, he looked sad, and worried. And still a little afraid.

Also, you can see a kind, compassionate soul in the actor's eyes during those scenes. That's hardly the actor's fault, of course - the eyes never lie; even the best actors can't hide their true selves from showing in their eyes. Even sociopaths can't keep their lack of a normal soul from showing in their eyes. But it wouldn't have been noticeable if he'd been portraying Voldemort as being ecstatic with triumph like he should have.

By comparison, the two boys who played Tom Riddle were much better at portraying young sociopaths.

EDIT: Voldemort disintegrating? NO NO NO NO NO!!! He needs to leave a corpse behind to prove he's dead! They need his head to stick on a pike as a warning to all dark wizards!!!

Wow-- you know... you're the only person I know besides me who noticed that about Voldemort's expression and eyes and thought, "That's not how a sociopath does it!" Nice to know I'm not the only one! HEH!
