you can hear how amused the audience was with Benetict’s reading!
you just cannot scroll pass this!
I THANK YOU FOR SWORDFISH
This is wrong yet hilarious at the same time. What I don’t get is how the “He’s not my father!” line got mistranslated when the Chinese subtitle is correct. :o On another note,I THANK YOU FOR SWORDFISH.
Hadley was magnificent and such a pleasure to watch. He had a great command of language, just so completely at ease with it. He had a brilliant understanding of Aufidius’s passionate and pragmatic nature, his body language was very strong and masculine. The joy and pride that Aufidius has in being a warrior shone through all the time and his fury and bitterness was always just brimming under the surface. The Let me twine Mine arms monologue was incredibly beautiful, still very passionate but tender by a warrior’s standard.
Hadley and Tom were a perfect match for each other, they made sure that they audience knew Aufidius and Coriolanus have a very sensual relationship that is fuelled by intense hatred and mutual admiration and how much they relish the chance for a one-on-one so by the time they come face to face in Corioles, you are excited for it. I think Hadley was slightly more confident at fighting than Tom but the physicality was immense and it was so satisfying to watch.
I can’t remember specifically what Hadley was like during the bows - isn’t that awful? - but I think he was smiling, everyone else was.
I feel kind of bad that all my Coriolanus-related posts and tweets have come from snatched interval moments, tapping things out on my phone with freezing fingers in the middle of the night sat on flattened cardboard boxes outside the Donmar and while trying not to doze off on a bus home. For those reasons I’d like to belatedly apologise for all spelling mistakes, appalling grammar and incoherence. And for most of my tweets using the shorthand of actor names rather than character names - I can’t reliably spell Aufidius for a start!
Anyway now I’m home and have had some sleep I’ve tried to type things a bit more coherently; behind a cut for length.
can we just talk about Joss Whedon’s script for the avengers?

Dude, no, it was so obvious. Real Odin would never have let Thor go because he’s a massive bastard. He’d be all YOU TAKE THIS THRONE RIGHT NOW IT’S YOUR DUTY YOUR MOTHER WOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOU I HAVE NO SON DO YOU WANT YOUR FAKE BROTHER’S CELL? I THOUGHT NOT, NOW BE KING.
