Today in science we learned that you can never gain cold, you can only have an absence of heat; and it made me think that maybe hatred doesn’t exist, and there’s only an absence of love.
this is the realist shit I’ve ever read
sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes writers say ‘lol no’ instead
What’s sad is that I was saying the tag in my head before I read it.
Found an interview talking about Looper, and some things stood out for me:
RianJohnson: Even though I was writing the part for Joe, the character is nothing like my friend Joe. Besides wanting to work with my friend, largely the reason I knew Joe was absolutely the right man for the job was because of the transformation it would require. He loves it and excels at it.
He loves four hour makeup jobs?
Joe: Three hours.
RianJohnson: Have I told you lately that I love you?
I have a lot of respect for actors who are willing to go great lengths to really make their part WORK, to create a complete character, and to keep that character’s integrity on a physical level, as well.
It’s one thing I adore about Tom Hardy, and I’m loving Joe’s efforts in Looper! Later in the interview, he says:
Joe: [….] But that’s what I love most about acting: becoming someone different than myself. If the character I’m playing reminds me of me at all, I feel like I messed it up. I want to see someone different on the screen. My favorite performances tend to be the ones where the actor really disappears in the role. [….] I tend to like the chameleons.
Well, you did an EXCELLENT job with “Joe” from Looper!!
I was saying to Girlfriend after watching the film, that when there’s a part in which JGL is shown but the character development is the progression of life towards “older Joe,” Bruce Willis’ age range, I honestly wasn’t interpreting the person on the screen as JGL-“Joe.”
I saw him, the same face we’d just seen as “younger Joe,” but my brain was like okay, here’s the other “Joe.”
That’s a serious WIN on the part of the acting. The writing, too, and the art of the film for giving a new setting, a new set of parameters around the character… but Joe had to pull off being different, progressing as this character that his main-thrust-of-the-film character hadn’t gotten to, yet.
But yeah… my film-watching mind forgot I was watching Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing this “Joe,” and just interpreted the face as “Joe” heading for “older Joe” played by Willis.
That’s when character acting really takes off.
That awkward moment when you break 50,000 words on what was supposed to be a quick one-shot… again.
Apparently I just don’t have any idea how to write short fics. Acceptable losses was supposed to be just a quick threesome smut piece… now it’s got entire arcs going on and I’ve written 75,000 words of it.
Clipped was something I prompted hoping someone ELSE would fill then I kept getting all of these IDEAS…and yeah. I get way too into character development.
What is my life?
NO. STOP IT. STAWP. JUST KEEP WRITING. <3<3<3<3<3
