#in the hands of almost any other actor#this would collapse the entire artifice of the show & the contrivance of one actress playing about a dozen clones#the integrity of each performance would break down#you’d be left with the sense that the clones are interchangeable women with only superficial differences in appearance & mannerism#but somehow she’s able to layer these performances one over another like skins#there’s a tangible difference between tatiana maslany as alison hendrix#and tatiana maslany as sarah manning as alison hendrix#each of the clones is so whole and unique and distinct that the performances are collectively an argument:#these human beings aren’t interchangeable#they share DNA but environment and nurture and epigenetics have made them completely singular individuals#[they aren’t even all women]#you can’t generalise them; there’s no single trait they all share#except that they’re human beings not biological objects to be exploited#her work is such a tour de force sometimes it just leaves you breathless (via elucipher)

look at how fucking drunk dionysus is
look at apollo
look at his face

Wait a second…
One of the best moments of my childhood.
ZERO HAD ZERO FUCKS
I can’t even tell you how excited I was that they turned this book into a movie and it was good
I literally have absolutely no complaints with the movie at all. Once, my friend and I did comparisons from the book and the movie, and we found the only major difference was the fact that Stanley wasn’t heavy set when he arrived at the camp in the movie. The majority of the script is raw quotations from the book.
This is my favorite book to movie adaptation and it did everything Percy Jackson, Inkheart, and The Golden Compass didn’t.
yesss this was such a good book and film
And the only reason Stanely wasn’t heavy set was because in the book he loses tons of weight and eventually ends up being almost thin. The director said he didn’t want to force an adolescent boy to lose weight on such a quick filming schedule, and L’bouf’s audition was so spot on, that they decided to go with a thinner Stanely from the beginning
Also the screenplay was wrote by the author
My only complaint is that it should have felt more dark and foreboding.
Zero was my precious little angel. I just wanted to protect him despite the fact that I wasn’t much older than he was when I first read the book.
this was literally my shit. the book and especially the movie. i was obsessed.
This was so good yesssss then the song they made together!!!!! I feel bad for the kids that don’t see it honestly.

“I want to hijack world history with you.
— Kingdom Come by S.T. Gibson
I want to kill monarchs
and infiltrate theocracies
and assault state capitols
and set the captives free.
I want to be the prophet enacting your high-strategy will,
The favored, faithful first general of your imperial army.
The sage philosopher turning hearts towards you,
Oh darling, let’s be kings, I’m a killer in a crown.
Let’s build monuments so great God takes notice of us,
lets hide from His sight in a tangle of silken bedsheets
and toast to our infamy with goblets beaten from stolen gold.
Let our names be feared and revered and let us taste eternity
unwary of the cost.
They say this is love but I know it’s self-immolation,
the ignition of electricity between us.
So let us adorn ourselves with smoke and flame
drip blood rubies and pile up devotees like toy soilders,
let us dance, darling, on the ash and sing
‘our kingdom come, our will be done,
in thee as it is in me.’”
