We were born different from you, it’s in our blood. Nothing that you do or dream up can ever change that.
Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker in Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby”.
Things you should know before you listen to anything I have to say about Gatsby: I am a Victorianist (and, thus, the person who will argue with modernists when they go on and on about how their writers liberated society from Victorian mores), I hate Nick Carraway, and I will disagree with everything any man says about Daisy ever.
But I loved this film.
I knew he was going to be in this movie but I didn’t realize that he was actually a lead, mostly because IMDB never assigned his character a name, but THAT’S TOTALLY HIM AT THE FAR LEFT OF THE LINEUP
I was already excited before because the first RED is legit one of my favorite action movies, but now there’s more ladies and Lee Byung Hun is a main character and I’m SUPER EXCITED
this movie will stamp all over your heart
Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse
My reaction to epic dram sequences as a kid was to try to fast forward before my mom could steal the remote…but I always stopped for Cyd Charisse.
(PS: my mom would steal back the remote, rewind, and tell me about why I should pay attention. “This was the first ballet sequence in the history of musical theatre,” or “that man is actually one of the most important choreographers in musical history,” or “we shouldn’t fast forward when feelings make us uncomfortable.”)
