By Ariston Anderson There’s a trend in Venice films this year of aging men, in particular aging actors, dealing with the depression that comes with trying to find one’s relevance in life. Al Pacino in Barry Levinson’s The Humbling and Michael Keaton in Alejandro G. Inarritu’s Birdman have similar character arcs as suicidal theater men who can’t seem to find the stage. At a press conference Saturday for The Humbling, Pacino was asked whether he’s ever shared the two characters’ depression shown so clearly in the films.

"Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again." - Zelda Williams
