I think his nose is normal size, just looks big cos he is so small.
used well by kubrick in eyes wide shut in a way where cruise isn't really in on the joke. that film is a hilarious comedy after the first few times you see it and it's definitely intentional (from kubrick but not cruise)he looks like a caricature of a leading man and has this stilted quality to his acting. gives everything he's in this slight air of comedy.
A shame as I’d been looking forward to it as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a cornerstone text for me - I did my dissertation on it many years ago. The reviews have generally not been kind. Birtwhistle did an opera based on it but I know fuck all about opera.
I’m currently sitting in the back bedroom self isolating waiting for a PCR to return, I should really just get on with it and watch the fucking thing shouldn’t I?I still wanna see it. And I like that bloke who played Finchy. Although Green Knight is made by the same studio as The Witch, Hereditary and Midsommar all of which I have found - to say the least - disappointing.
Actually, when I see it written down like that, I do wonder why I keep coming back for more, but, I think there is a reason. These guys are trying to make good films. They are having a real go at making films which are original and interesting and distinctive and so on, and they are really doing their best - already in itself that makes them quite unusual - unfortunately two things are preventing them from succeeding, the first is really fundamental, and hard to see a way round other than hard work and failing better and so on, and it is basically the problem that they just lack any particular film making talent but I do sort of feel that if they keep on plugging away with that attitude then maybe they will start to improve. The second problem is what will fuck them in the long term though, and that's the excessive amounts of acclaim they are getting for these clumsy attempts, if they don't ever succeed in making good films then the reason will be that they have been sitting on their laurels cos moronic film critics have been pretending that Midsommar is good. If Ari Aster never makes a good film and his career is still born then it will due to these idiots who stifled him and stopped him stretching himself before he'd begun.
Yeah that's exactly the sort of scene I mean. It made me cringe, I felt embarrassed for him and it didn't make any sense in context and... what had poor old Apu done to deserve that really?but what about when he says "cos she's got a great ass" to the guy he busts in vegas?
pacino is great in that film. you should watch the other mann-pacino one, the insider now. he's good in that too.
