Harrison Ford is a man whose self-expression can often be self-contained.
Sometimes, it seems as if his inner anger courses beneath his skin like a pinball waiting for an opening.
Yet he must have been bracing himself Thursday for an inevitable rise in his blood pressure and concomitant fall in his hope for humanity.
