"The only thing that never tires me is you. Can you tell me why we’re cursed with this feeling that feels so… natural, and good? When we’re together, God seems to sit in the room with us. And when you’re away, I manage to forget you. And then…one touch of your hand and God comes rushing back.
God, or the devil?
Whatever it is, it overwhelms…
Can I be brutally honest? I want to watch Borgia: Faith and Fear because I’m genuinely interested in that period/family but every time I give it a go, I can’t get past the incongruous and conflicting accents (Lucrezia’s German and Cesare’s Irish…?) or, in fact, some incidences of truly bad acting. I mean. Jeremy Irons could ham it up with the best of them but The Borgias as a show overall, in terms of acting, production values and writing, just seems superior.
And after Francois Arnaud, every other characterization of Cesare just falls short for me, as historically inaccurate the character was written; he was beautifully written nonetheless (and his acting rose above it all).
And the chemistry between Holliday and Francois CANNOT BE DUPLICATED, OVERSTATED OR OUTDONE, am I right?
Natalie said her favorite scene in Rebel Without a Cause was one she shared with James Dean that was cut from the film.
“It was in the car. I was waiting for him and he comes up and we talk to each other. There was a section of the scene where I imply that I’ve sort of been around, that I’m not really pure.
I say to him, ‘Do you think that’s bad?’ And he says ‘No, I just think it’s lonely. It’s the loneliest time.’
I thought it was a wonderful line—right on the cutting room floor.”
I’ve seen 7 (“The Wedding”) and 8 (“Both Sides Now”) in preview copies, and while I’m not allowed to divulge details, just let me say this: TOTALLY worth the wait. Completely phenomenal, in terms of story, acting, costuming, atmosphere, everything. If this show isn’t nominated for every Emmy Award available next year, there is no justice in the world.
