As the title character, Dafoe “raises the humor and humanity to heights rarely felt in a Foreman work,” said Ben Brantley in The New York Times. Looking like a mad samurai, with his hair pulled up in a topknot, Dafoe reaches into a grab bag of histrionic styles, trying on and discarding each with masterful ease. One moment, he exhibits a “drooling imbecility,” reminiscent of Charles Laughton’s Quasimodo, the next he’s displaying a “vaudevillian brusqueness” that’s all Jimmy Durante. As he struggles to find his role in Foreman’s hermetically self-contained (and self-referential) theatrical reality, the Idiot is instructed by an offstage voice not to act, but to let the “play slowly creep over the stage.” Audiences might apply that same advice to their experience of Idiot Savant.
