I can’t not reblog Stuart. He halts me in my tracks and makes me feel things just by existing.

Into his flat, then into his life.

Now I see this photo in its entirety and still not sure what exactly is going on. Was Tom’s jacket too big so he clipped it up? Lol. 
Picture is from: Trash Aesthetic


That’s how they make things look like they fit for photo shoots without having to go to the trouble of altering the clothes.

An old review (from the New Statesman, Oct, 2007) of Stuart a Life Backwards which I think captures some of what is so great about this extraordinary film:

Benedict Cumberbatch as the posh, slightly nerdy Masters and Tom Hardy as the slurring, staggering (he had muscular dystrophy, on top of everything else) Stuart. Cumberbatch is a scene stealer of such prowess that he can nick an entire movie from its star with a handful of lines (if you don’t believe me, see Starter for Ten, whose lead, supposedly, is James McAvoy). Here, however, his performance was deliberately tamped down. He brought Masters alive with the smallest of tics - slow-blinking myopic eyes , the odd wry look - and managed to avoid making him seem like a patronising prig, a serious danger, given how little time he had to establish his character.It was Hardy, though, who broke your heart. I can’t remember the last time I saw a performance as convincing as this. Usually, when actors take on “extreme” roles - think Daniel Day-Lewis in My Left Foot- you can see the hard labour that has gone into the acting, and it’s exhausting; part of you just wants to shout: “Oh, speak properly, for God’s sake!” Not here. Hardy was Stuart, and every time he was on screen - which was most of the time - 1 was mesmerised. The clumpy feet, the low-slung trousers, the way his expression changed in a moment, like the sun going behind the clouds: it was all there, almost as if the real Stuart had come back to remind us all what middle-class “scum ponces” we are, with our futile liberal guilt and our lazy assumptions and our need to have a good cry in front of the television on a Sunday night.


Oh, this film. It breaks me.

I can’t not reblog all the Stuart posts. Every moment of interaction between these two just feels real and nuanced and perfect. Actually, those few moments Alexander takes to put aside his wariness with the curry is pretty much his reaction to Stuart in micro form.

Stuart: A Life Backwards

You gotta make it more exciting. Do it backwards, like a murder mystery. Like a best-seller.

These two just kill me. I want to rewatch this, but need to steel myself for it.

Astonishingly, I have never watched this interview before. Mostly I cringe at interviews, but the dual draw of Tom and Benedict drew me in. This environment looks an awful lot like the beer garden at a pub near where I used to live in Didsbury, Manchester. The nostalgia mixed with these two is killing me right now.

Two gorgeous men.

^^ Understatement.

I ask myself these questions all the time.

I can hear him saying this. I loved his mannerisms. He reminds me an awful lot of one of my relatives in this film.

Two of my very favourite people right now. I think I’ll have to rewatch Stuart: a life backwards, and steel myself for all the feelings again.
