“I love that [party] scene because you get to realize Jim has had a crush on Bill Haydon for his whole life, but it’s observed with subtlety. There’s no great scene in which I say that or which it’s revealed; it’s just done with a look. Earlier on in the film, you see photos of them just having played a game of rugby and they look very happy. Little subtle clues such as that I really enjoyed about this film.” - Mark Strong
i am going to say it again… while i don’t intend to detract from both Redmayne’s and Keaton’s marvelous and bravura performances, i think BC’s incarnation of Turing is going under the radar because it is such an internal, nuanced creation. like Gary Oldman in TTSS; i think that the technical and emotional range that BC brings together in TIG is so deftly done it is almost easy to miss just how brilliant it is…. *sigh*.
all the awards for BC please; just all the awards for this extraordinary man.
