I hate America, Louis. I hate this country. It’s just big ideas, and stories, and people dying, and people like you. The white cracker who wrote the national anthem knew what he was doing. He set the word “free” to a note so high nobody can reach it. That was deliberate. Nothing on earth sounds less like freedom to me. You come with me to room 1013 over at the hospital, and I’ll show you America. Terminal, crazy, and mean. I live in America, Louis, that’s hard enough, I don’t have to love it. You do that. Everybody’s got to love something.
7 e 10, nota personale: se fissi il vuoto puoi diventare cieco.
Cosa possono fare gli occhi senza il cervello? Niente? Se non c'è un cervello che trasmette le immagini che vediamo, non vediamo niente… il mio cervello è rimasto indietro, i miei occhi lo sanno, bisogna cercare, cercare e sperare… oliare il cervello per farlo correre. Sono fermi con i miei occhi in mano, stavano correndo troppo, dicono che non c'è più tempo… Come facciamo a stringere l'essenza di Dio? Le mani mi fanno male, gli occhi si stanno chiudendo, il mio cervello è in ritardo, in ritardo, ma io sto cominciando a vedere.
9 e 13, nota personale:
quando ero piccolo mia madre mi diceva che non bisogna mai guardare fisso il sole, ma una volta, a sei anni, l'ho fatto. I dottori non sapevano se i miei occhi sarebbero guariti, io ero terrorizzato, ero solo in mezzo a tutto quel buio. A poco a poco la luce cominciò a farsi strada fra le bende e io riacquistai la vista, ma qualcosa era cambiato dentro di me, e cominciarono le emicranie.”

Louis: I always get so closety at these family things. Prior: Butch. You get butch. “Oh hey, cousin Doris, you don’t remember me, I’m Lou, Rachel’s boy.” Lou, never Louis, otherwise they’ll hear the sibilant s. Louis: I do not have a - Prior: And by the way dear, cousin Doris is a dyke. Louis: No. Really? Prior: You don’t notice anything. If I hadn’t spent the last four years fellating you, I’d swear you were straight.
Eric: ‘Cause you’re not gonna get stuck with somebody else’s kid
I know this movie isn´t perfect, but from time to time I really need a movie with lgbt-characters and a happy end. No suicide, no murder, no aids, no drama… just a happy end! And a happy end for a gender nonconforming child and his two dads in tv is what I need today!
I watched the last episode of Angels in America last night, this show was so amazing! I would love to see the play at the theatre. I think it was one of the greatest TV shows that I’ve ever seen and that’s a lot.
The story was great, the writing was fantastic along with the execution and I simply adored all of the characters. Especially Justin Kirk as Prior! <3 And Ben Shenkman as Louis! I loved them together <3
Obviously Al Pacino was great in it, and so was Meryl Steep who I’ve weirdly now seen in two things this week, this and The River Wild. That must be a first lol. Emma Thompson as the Angel as well.
All the actors were great, Patrick Wilson as Joe and Jeffrey Wright who always made me smile as Belize. Mary-Louise Parker was pretty funny as Harper too.
I am so glad that Sky Atlantic showed this so I got to see it and it looked amazing in HD, I’m kinda sad though that I’ve seen it all now :(
But if you haven’t seen it I suggest you do because you will love it. I did. So did my parents.
It had sweet moments and sad moments, it had funny moments and interesting moments. It really had it all, what more could you want from a show.
I loved how they made Heaven look, it wasn’t how people would conventionally perceive it and I liked how before he got there the picture changed to black and white when he walked the ladder up there except Prior’s red robe! <3
I’m gonna miss this, might have to buy it on dvd to watch it again!
