R3 - You have GOT to be fucking kidding me.

That performance was brilliant. He outshone every other lead in the rest of The Hollow Crown series, including Rory Kinnear as Bolingbroke, Jeremy Irons as Henry IV, Hiddleston as Prince Hal and Henry V, Tom Sturridge as Henry VI, and Cumberbatch as the worst Richard III I have ever seen. And except for Cumberbatch, the rest of those named were very, very good.

No, he isn't handsome but he's very intense. First came across him in "The Hour". I think frankly that he's probably one of the five best actors of his generation.

Perfume was weird. I knew a frau who loved it.

Whishaw plays a guy who targets beautiful virgins to murder and use their vagina fat to make perfume. Would virginal vages smell better than nonvirginal? And do vages on beautiful virgins smell better than those of ugly virgins? Apparently, yes.

We love him, but besides being a fantastic talented actor he's kind of boring in real life?

I think he could be the first openly gay actor to win a Best Actor Oscar if the right role comes along (Freddie Mercury SHOULD have been it) and if Sir Ian doesn't get there first

[quote]Maybe it's just a partner.

They had a civil partnership in 2012.

He's a jobbing actor in that he takes on anything. Nothing is too big or too small for him. Considering he's in the James Bond franchise, and he's won BAFTAs and an Emmy (or was it the Golden Globe?) he still does short films that play in film fests and he's still the voice of Paddington for the Nickelodeon series. He'll be in the next season of Fargo for FX and he's doing another BBC series.

He's not handsome, and so he was pretty cruelly miscast as Sebastian Flyte in the awful film version of "Brideshead Revisited."

But he is a singular screen presence, and has been terrific in multiple films and TV projects, including "Bright Star," "A Very English Scandal," and "The Hollow Crown." I will say that he does have a pretty narrow range (he's always playing anxious artsy types), but within that range he is superb.

Wishaw's Richard II (and that entire production) was my first exposure to the play and I fell for it big time. The incredible poetry, the "this happy breed" speech (among many), the resonant garden embarrassment of riches...I subsequently saw the David Tennant production, which, but for its superb incidental musical score, didn't have the same impact. I'm curious to see the Fiona Shaw film which is currently on Prime, I believe.

R65 The movie is terrible (but the trailer is fantastic).

Cloud atlas was not made for being a film, it's too complex to translate well into a film. Even a tv show will have problems to adapt. The estructure of the novel, six linked stories (narrated till the middle of the story before going to the next one and going back in inverse order till end in the first story) is not the easies to make it easy to follow when you put that on images.

But even after reading the novel the film is extremelly confusing

Cloud Atlas: I've read the book right before the movie came out and saw the movie maybe two weeks after finishing - and actually loved both. Books and movies are different medias and can (and should and need to) tell stories differently.

My most favorite roles of Ben Wishaw are London spy (probably totally underrated) and Q in James Bond/Skyfall. Just love him.

I saw The Crucible, Whishaw was good, as was Saorsie -- it was the staging that was all wrong. Ivo van Hove's showy shtick can really get in his own way sometimes. He never gave us any reason for setting it in a schoolhouse with everybody in uniforms, it was distracting

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
