LIke Eve and Ava both has dread which is, they don't necessarily care about it all that much, and at one point eves pants are ridiculously dirty because she wears them a lot and just attention to detail GAH
they wove yak and goat hair into tilda swinton’s wig to give it a rougher and more animal look.
Snowpiercer is a post-apocalyptic movie about people who are obsessed with avoiding a repeat apocalypse in their ever-shrinking new world. They are hanging by their fingertips from the precipice of yet another disaster.
It’s also a story about breaking points, and when Curtis and Yona reach that final moment at the front of the train, we learn that everyone’s worst fear is little more than a fairytale. No one had even bothered to check whether the outside world was habitable again.
The conclusive realisation isn’t that Curtis has been tricked by Gilliam all along, but that there’s no point in attempting to fight the system on its own terms (i.e. by Getting To The Front Of The Train). The only people who recognise the need for true revolution are Namgoong Minsu and Yona. And since this post has already careened into the territory of obnoxious undergrad political essays, I may as well describe Namgoong and Yona as what they are: Representatives of the counterculture and the marginalised. The prophets who have become reliant on mind-altering drugs because it’s better than facing up to the truth that only they can see.
Orlando is a very dear memory for me: it was the first time I had worked alongside a project for so long - it took us five years, from first deciding to try to make it, to finishing the film - and Sally is a great friend of mine: we thought at the time we would never get to the finish with it.. but once it was done, we realised we savoured every minute of the ride.. if you mean would I ever play another cross-dressing, gender transitioning, four hundred year old English aristocrat again, I feel like saying it’s not likely, as those stories aren’t told so often..but then again, Orlando never feels very far away from me, somehow.
