If you’re in the mood for a diverting if violent exercise, this weekend you can watch a 28-year-old Vincent D’Onofrio as a doomed jarhead in Full Metal Jacket, then hop to Fox Tower and watch a 51-year-old Vincent D’Onofrio as a doomed Cleveland mob underboss in Kill the Irishman. D’Onofrio rarely makes it through a picture unscathed: He has embraced the features that make him seem like a diseased child, a hopeless cause, and it may be that he never quite recovered from the beneath-the-brows breakdown Kubrick had him perform in the Jacket barracks. He’s still plumbing his major malfunction. Laurelhurst.
