my fave BC interview ever… ending with the cumber-giggle
Look at them. Look at the brothers.
Look at the haughty raised chin because appearances must always be kept, even if you’ve been caught on the hop by emotions or at the gym.
Look at the posture, ditto on appearances. Whether in a morning suit or lycra, a Holmes maintains his posture. And his composure.
And the hand. The left hand and the curling fingers of impatience? Frustration? Frustration because they are brothers and love eachother really but it can’t easily be expressed?
Was this directed? Did one watch the other and take the gestures on?
Acting. It’s rather lovely. Especially when done so blinking well.
Brother and sisterday today so I’ve heard.
Lucky I’m at my parents’ today so snagged a pic with my silly brother.
"But they sort of pooh-poohed the idea, and I ended up with Laurence instead"
"The new run of Lewis, which begins on Friday 10 October at 9pm on ITV"
I think that every choice is political. When you decide that a woman can be a character of her own and not have to fall in love with the f***ing guy, that’s a political choice. When you choose that they can speak in their own language and be subtitled, that’s a political choice. I think it’s very important for us to understand that we are all — the whole world — in the same robot. It’s this f***ing planet. No matter who you are, what you like to do, whatever your race or whatever your religion, we’re all human. And I think it’s really great to make a movie that celebrates that diversity.
Q: I really appreciate the fact that you have non-American actors speaking their native languages, instead of making it seem like everyone in the world speaks English like it usually is in most Hollywood movies. Why is Hollywood so allergic to subtitles? — Interview in Today Online with Guillermo del Toro, 11/07/2013
BAAAHHHH WHY IS HE SO GREAT
