    Hannibal Hopkins & Sir Anthony (2021)
    Hopkins' career has spanned several decades, which is why we will also use many interviews that he gave throughout his life, allowing us to put him back into the context of each period and will be helpful in understanding his role in the history of cinema, because he was far from following the trends. He never belonged to any film movement; he is a chameleon that has always preferred natural acting, 'non-acting' when method acting was the fashion. (imdb)
