sam mendes just letting supremely talented actors just go off
i wanna b in an over-air-conditioned acting studio with a messianic old ex-new yorker hunched in the back screaming one of their fight scenes w some himbo nobody-yet actor
i have a feeling the text on which this is based is really vibrant and dimensional but on screen it feels a little desiccated, it’s so literally beige
the actual NERVE of kathy bates
the women !!!
a prism: one angle, a man reflecting on his ever-evolving relationship to the past present and future women in his life a la 8 ½. another angle, his relationship to his own creativity the soul el alma, to capitalism, to where does the show end and business begin. the intersection of creativity and sex, creation. divinity ! but the prism is constantly turning, nothing is lighted on for too long. dazzling stunning
this was my first time…
