Good Monday and Happy Morning, one and all! Hey, eyes down here. Yes this morning seemed a good time to finally share some "Christopher Abbott in Possessor" love -- took me damn long enough. I reviewed the movie weeks ago (right here) and as we all now know movies only get discussed for one to two days now and then they're done! Finito! Well I apologize -- last night I was watching Christopher's next conversation starter, called Black Bear and co-starring Aubrey Plaza, and...
#NowWatching BLACK BEAR and you guys... my thing for Christopher Abbott has gotten really really real in the past twelve months or so; he sure is something pic.twitter.com/QQECuCsly3— Jason Adams (@JAMNPP) November 16, 2020
... that got me thinking about Chris. He really is something, right? I'm trying to think of what did it -- you know, "it", turned the tide, or in the parlance of this here website you're on right now: what was "The Moment I Fell For..." Christopher Abbott? It was Piercing I think? A combination of Piercing and Catch-22. I mean I'd thought he was good before that -- I thought he was good on Girls way back.
his IMDb as I type this) there was Hello I Must Be Going with Melanie Lynskey of course! How could I forget that? What a wonderful movie. (PS it's on Amazon Prime right now.) His resume really is scattered with gems. The only major one that I haven't seen is James White and I'm just gonna admit I am afraid of James White. I am afraid it will destroy me, emotionally speaking, and so I haven't been able to bring myself to watch it. Some day I'll be in the mood for that but given the way of the world for the past few years those days have been in short supply. Anyway...
... I hadn't shared the trailer for Black Bear, Chris' new movie which inspired this entire post, before, so there that is. And I will definitely, definitely have more to say about it when it comes out on December 4th. To get us through the next two to five minutes of that wait here after the jump are a handful of prized Possessor gifs, and believe me you'll dig...
Your never having seen James White is like a chocoholic who has never eaten a brownie.
this movie was top notch, it was like some weird melding of sci-fi and gore. we loved it.
the actor was very distracting to me though as he looks just like the boy i used to sleep over at and do naughty things with in grade school. 😂
Yep, for me it was Hello I Must Be Going. Thought he was great in that.
But can someone explain the mirror GIFs? Why is he, uh, checking himself out like that?
yeh, I avoided that one too for the same reason and then Timmotee said way back when that it was his favourite and I knew I was right to avoid it because you know young people love a super intense film because the weight of it doesn't quite touch them. It's still validating that experience of youth and it's compelling but it's a different experience since they are still trying to wrap their head around the big life stuff. Maybe you get more from it because of this I don't know, Timmy's no fool. I guess there are just a whole lot of films I was enthralled by when I was young that would be overwhelming to me now.
"But can someone explain the mirror GIFs? Why is he, uh, checking himself out like that?" -- it's kind of a spoiler! So no! Just watch the movie:)
Anon at 11:28 -- I actually found all you said really interesting. I've been wrestling with some of that lately; I loved Requiem for a Dream when I was 22 but I'm not sure I can muster up the strength now. We have to choose our battles more wisely the older we get.
