like, visually stunning and the soundtrack is the perfect accompaniment and i’m glad i saw it on the big screen because it just would not have had the same impact otherwise.
you know how most people think that shakespeare was pretty good with words and,like, maybe even the reason his work is so enduring is because of the way he crafted words, so, like, my question is
HOW THE FUCK ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO HEAR THE WORDS WHEN ALL THE ACTORS HAVE THE VOCAL ENERGY OF A YAK AND FUCKING MURDER WHISPERING ALL OVER THE PLACE
i think the problem is that movies do visuals so well which is also one of the functions of the words to compensate for the lack of scenery (i think i can say that though there’s a certain amount of ‘you can’t lack what you never had’ - medieval theatre had scenery), so my point is: the visual vocabulary of films competes with the vocabulary of shakespeare and shakespeare loses out.
and just to be contrary, i do think you need to edit shakespeare heavily to make one of those plays into a good movie, but that is a totally other kettle of fish from murder whispering.
(…) And Theron does that here in such a powerful, heartbreaking way that I found myself in awe of how she was able to communicate so much in a glance.
There’s this moment when she re-enters the rig after Max drives it away from an attacking motorcycle gang, and she looks him up and down as he scoots over, and she has this tiny – not smile, but almost approving or knowing glance that lets us know: she knows she’s won him over. And he’ll be on their side now.
There are tons of moments like this throughout, where all we get is Theron’s eyes to tell us everything. (x)
I was watching this scene in take shelter and it really got to me because it’s just a simple display of someone who knows their partner is unraveling but instead of fearing them or giving them up as damaged goods, they decide “this is my person, they need help and I’m going to do this with them” and idk it reminded me of hange’s temper and “weirdness”, and how levi kind of just accepts it and can focus and calm that storm.
Don’t think I have any intention of caressing your cheek and saying I was wrong.. I will not weep and wonder what might have been. I’m sure you understand. Still, I’m proud of you, in a way. You’ve shown great conviction. Strength. Courage. All noble qualities. I should have killed you long ago.
