ok yikes so i’ve listened to all too well (taylor’s version) AND watched this creepy-ass film and i would 10/10 still get all up in gyllenhaal’s business. is he soft cancelled or am i?
just snuck in under the wire seeing this one in theatres, and i’m glad i did. this flick is big big BIG and it deserves to be seen that way, not in the least to really elevate the dope score and sound design, and those massive amazing set pieces.
i was less excited by the man directly behind us whose phone kept randomly playing his podcast about automobiles, but i enjoyed his character arc of increasing it to full volume in sheer panic and then eventually figuring out how to make it stop.
kinda braggy but i got through this without a pee break 😎
one time cate blanchett came to my drama school with a tv crew because it was her old drama school and they sat in and filmed us in a clowning class and it was the most mortifying experience and i think guillermo del toro did a beautiful job of capturing the bleak desperation of young hacks trying to impress cate blanchett with physical comedy
