I've moved the above 3 posts to place them in a more general villain thread, rather than the Spalko thread from which they originated.

Belloq's the gold standard, or at least one of them, for summer blockbuster villains, in my opinion. A nuanced, not particularly flashy performance, rendering a character just shades worse than the hero and with emotional responses that we can understand. Few villains get to be as legitimately charming as Belloq does in the scene in the tent, mirror trick notwithstanding.
