Watchmen and the Whisperers

What did you think of "Watchmen"? I loved Jackie Earle Haley's Rohrschach, with his changeable ink-blot face and his unnerving whispery voice that made him sound like Clint Eastwood's sinister son. Pint-sized Haley reminded other people of the gallon-sized Eastwood, too, as this post observes. One actor not mentioned in this hush-hush, on the QT observation about whisperers such as Christian Bale, Eastwood and Haley is Keanu Reeves, who is likewise a deliverer of breathy dialogue. Why whisperers? Because people who speak low draw you towards them. Those with a bombastic delivery (think Jack Nicholson) make you pull back.
