when will we stop TALKING and starting DOING? when will we finally make serious attempts at building a quentin tarantino themed amusement park? where is my death proof bumper cars and my black mamba roller coaster and my mr. orange water ride (the water’s dyed red because you’re floating in a pool of his blood)??

“I loved acting but I didn’t take it seriously until I worked with Montgomery Clift in A Place in the Sun. I still would drive everybody mad on the set and give them the giggles, be silly and all that. But when I saw Monty preparing, I thought: My God, this isn’t only about just having fun. And I think that’s when I first looked at him and saw how involved he was, his whole being. He could make himself shake and he couldn’t stop after the director said: cut. I thought: I’ve got to find out what it is inside him that moves him so completely emotionally that can get him to that state as George Eastman, not Montgomery Clift. To make the sweat literally come out of his body. To make his eyes actually fill with tears as George Eastman. Watching his intensity I learnt not to let it kill you, but that it wasn’t a game. That you had to feel it in your gut. And I think that’s when I first began to act.”

honestly I think we all go through the correcting people’s grammar on the internet phase.  luckily mine was only a week long and I spent six months picking up garbage on the freeway as atonement

Ralph Fiennes by Lord Snowdon (1990’s)

" What does a man do? A man provides for his family. When you have children, you always have family. They will always be your priority, your responsibility. A man provides, and he does it even when he’s not appreciated… or respected… or even loved. He simply bears up, and he does it… because he’s a man."

I remember watching this shortly after it was released and thinking to myself “oh my God, I’m watching a $20 million presidential campaign crash to the ground in front of my very own eyes”

To this day, this stands as the finest example that I know of for attempting to pander to a primary election so hard that you completely ignore your prospects for the actual race

#man the music in this is fucking so well done #im not even being sarcastic from a production standpoint im finding it fascinating how they added those tension-filled undertones of confusion when he talks about gays in the military and then the resolution and clarity that cymbal brings when he says #”as president” #like this is commercial music 101 but it’s even more remarkable when you consider context (x)

“I feel unspeakably lonely. And I feel - drained. It is a blank state of mind and soul I cannot describe to you as I think it would not make any difference. Also it is a very private feeling I have - that of melting into a perpetual nervous breakdown. I am often questioning myself what I further want to do, who I further wish to be; which parts of me, exactly, are still functioning properly. No answers, darling. At all.”
