Again these two and their matching acting

anonymous asked:

Make me choose: Iris West or Kendra Saunders. Iris West, of course. Ironically, Ciara Renee also auditioned for the part of Iris West. However, I'm so glad that the show runners went with Candice Patton. I can't imagine, Barry/GG with anyone else! #WestAllen4L

These two were a match made in heaven when it comes to chemistry and acting chops. They melt me in a way no one else can. I have NEVER shipped a couple this hard before, and I doubt I will again. I can’t imagine anyone else playing these parts and I am SO GLAD the powers that be saw the amazing magic and grabbed it!

The Look of Silence

(Joshua Oppenheimer, 2014)

Oppenheimer, the new creative wildman on the documentary horizon, a sort of heir to Werner Herzog or Errol Morris follows up his breakthrough The Act of Killing with this companion piece that aims to focus on the victims of the men which that film put a lens on.

I wasn’t big on The Act of Killing when it came out, but it’s a film that has grown in my estimation in the years since. Maybe that’s because I haven’t had to sit through its torturously slow pace, or bear witness to its extreme unpleasantness again, but regardless, it’s as interesting a film as has been made in the last decade or so, and The Look of Silence… can’t quite match it on that front.

The Act of Killing was a work of almost obscenely black comedy, the sort of thing you had to see to believe. This years Best Picture Oscar contender The Big Short features an exchange between two individuals stepping to one side from an interview they’re conducting with a pair of idiotic young men recounting the details of the illegal activity in which they’re engaged. One interviewer asks the other “I don’t get it. Why are they confessing?” to which his colleague replies “They’re not confessing, they’re bragging”. The Act of Killing was basically built around a similar scenario, and without any directorial influence, talking heads, or sombre instructional music, it revealed to the viewer the depths of human depravity.

Alongside it The Look of Silence, the film many people (including myself) thought should have been made in the first place cannot help but feel less compelling/complex. It’s still an immensely powerful piece of work, as we follow the family, primarily Adi, the brother of one of the victims of the men in the first film as he goes to confront each of the men in interview. Watching these people now squirm after the way they had boasted in the previous film is the masterstroke that ensures this film could not have been made/worked as well unless that one had come first.

Beyond that Oppenheimer again peppers his exploration with more loosely related asides. It chronicles how Adi’s family react to his potentially dangerous exercises, and it inserts into the film moments shot by the man himself with a camera Oppenheimer provided him with. Such scenes flavour the movie, and lend it a more down to earth, human quality that would not be present if we focused entirely on the interviews. Still, though it is a very watchable movie, and moves along far more easily than The Act of Killing ever did, I feel like it will only ever be seen as the more emotionally engaging, more easily palatable, less interesting half of a tremendously powerful cinematic double act.

Durrant Fumes At Defending

In quite dreadful conditions at Lennoxtown, the Light Blues conceded all three goals immediately before and after the half-time interval, but performed relatively well outside of that period.

Afterwards, a frustrated Durrant told RangersTV.tv: “We pushed the self-destruct button again. Three minutes before half time, we let Celtic get out and we never pressed the ball or got tight to people and they opened us up and got the goal.

“It was then the ‘Keystone Cops’ in the opening minutes of the second half as we gave them two goals, and before we knew it we were 3-0 down and chasing the match. “There was nothing in the game, other than three glaring mistake from us.”

Durrant revealed the riot act was read to his players following the game, although he admitted he can’t wait for another crack at the Hoops in order to put a few things right.

He continued: “We stated to the boys in the dressing room before the game that it would be a game of mistakes given the weather conditions, but the mistakes we made were diabolical, and they have been told in no uncertain manner that the need to shape up. We can’t give teams of the calibre of Celtic with the quality of player they have chances like that.

“For 40 minutes, we were comfortable without really creating anything I may add, but in terms of possession we dominated the ball without any end product.

“We play them again in a month or so, and I am looking forward to that game already as I know we will be and I will make sure we will be mentally stronger.”

IAN DURRANT was left to rue three defensive lapses as Rangers went down 3-0 to Celtic this afternoon.

Seems we have not got any better than the end of season games against Celtic last season. Most disappointing.
