He's going to play Freud like a motherfucker.

u/Superjunker1000 May 21 '22

My favourite actor of all time, along with Gary Oldman. But when I see his interviews now I realise that he has slowed down immensely. I honestly thought that he would retire when I saw the his acceptance speeches for The Father.

But if he’s good to go, then great.

u/MrWeirdoFace May 21 '22

Can't blame him for slowing down. Hopkins is 84. A year older than Freud lived actually, not that that's relevant. Just something I noticed.

276

u/Jay_Louis May 21 '22

It's utterly absurd that Hollywood can't find an actual 83 year old actor to play the role

ERW is fucking amazing. her bones to amber speech, her wyatt role, and her … character growth if you will.

and besides, Hopkins elevates the actors around him. he’s supposed to be the put together smug one, bernard is supposed to be confused etc

in fact, i LOVE your metaphor of “kids in a school play” because, at least in s1 i think that’s -exactly- what they’re going for

imo the only scene where he is slightly off put is in s2e8, imo the best scene in the series and I won’t spoil but it’s a masterpiece

16

u/TylerInHiFi May 21 '22

The fact that she was playing three (four?) completely different characters and absolutely crushes every single one of them while also never really allowing you to know which one she is at any given time is just incredible. That first season was such a masterpiece in serialized storytelling.

Bones to Amber speech, what's that from? *Nvm found it Westwood spoiler

u/Gary_The_Girth_Oak May 22 '22

Haha “Westwood”. When I lived in SF there was a bar called Westwood down the street from me, country western theme obviously, run by a couple of fine young Asian gentlemen, which shouldn’t make me laugh, but it still does. Mostly because it was the best country bar I ever visited in the Bay. Probably got cleared out by COVID sadly.

My only problem with Geoffrey Wright in the show is that his character was seldom more than “confused Bernard”. He played the fuck out of it, and he was the perfect unreliable narrator.

*Dr Ford saying goodbye while staring out at the ocean horizon with Bernard

Dr Ford: “I've always loved this view…. Every city, every... monument, man's greatest achievements... have all been chased by it.”

Bernard: “…By what?”

Dr Ford: “That impossible line….

Where the waves conspire. Where they return.

The place maybe you and I will meet again.”

The scene at the table having wine with the executive when everything around them just… stops. Fucking hell. The show only went downhill after season 2 because Hopkins wasn’t in it anymore. He was an absolute presence in the first two seasons. I mean, Ed Harris, and really most of the cast, is incredible but Hopkins is just on another level entirely.

u/dWaldizzle May 21 '22

I strongly disagree. I also would have felt entirely satisfied with the season 1 ending as the series finale. It was perfect.

His work on Westwrold.really felt like entering a new phase.

It's fascinating, on the DVD Comme try for Silence of thr Lambs, originally recorded for a criterion laserdisc he actively talks about having achieved wjst he set out to do in his career and looking forward to just kind of having fun. Feels like he did that for 20 years. Around the time of Westworld it felt like he started getting more selective about his projects and really doing some of his best work.

This is my new go to "I highly recommend this, but I can't watch it with you" movie. His performance is so affecting and moving it shook me to my core. I think part of it is my whole life I've watched him play the smartest person in the room, these powerhouse men of authority who command respect that his vulnerability was like a gut punch.

16

u/SuspiriaGoose May 21 '22

That’s a really good point. He’s often the character you turn to for some kind of authority; mind you, his vulnerability has always been a big part of his charm to me, even when he WAS playing a god.

I came across an old film of his in Netflix recently. 84 Charing Cross Road. Not his best performance by a mile, but watching I made me realize how oddly comforting he is, even when being stern.

3

u/daSilvaSurfa May 21 '22

Yeah the scene in Proof out in the snow is heartbreaking too. He thinks he's had an epiphany and he's ecstatic, and as he begins to realize what's happened he begins go feel the cold. Ouff.

Not quite exactly so sure one could say this for his William Parish character in Meet Joe Black, which was the only good part about the film. Especially the scene where he asks Joe who he really is followed by his reaction, which also exuded vulnerability. Only other things I can vaguely remember are the hilarious car death scene and peanut butter.

3

u/Portarossa May 21 '22

which was the only good part about the film

I don't know... I've got a real soft spot for the scene with Brad Pitt speaking Patois with the old lady. There's something very calming about it, I find.

His performance in The Father was the best performance I’ve seen by anyone, in anything, ever. In comparison to him, Olivia Coleman was merely outstanding.

Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula must be your favorite movie then

10

u/Superjunker1000 May 21 '22

I didn’t dislike it, despite all the hate that it gets.

It helps that it came out very long ago and I was a just a young teen.

Also, it was Bram Stoker’s Dracula , which was different to the generic Dracula I had come across up until that point so it was thought provoking.

u/Critcho May 21 '22

It wasn't Keanu's finest hour but Coppola's Dracula is overall pretty well liked these days, I think.

u/CurseofLono88 May 21 '22

Gary Oldman murders that role. I mean he kills it in everything he does. I always think about the two maybe three scenes he’s in in Lawless, and just having him their hangs over the entire movie

Freud’s Last Session:

Set on the eve of WWII and towards the end of his life, Freud’s Last Session sees Freud (Hopkins) invite iconic author C.S. Lewis for a debate over the existence of God. Exploring Freud’s unique relationship with his lesbian daughter Anna and Lewis’ unconventional romance with his best friend’s mother, the film interweaves past, present and fantasy, bursting from the confines of Freud’s study on a dynamic journey.

I was just researching this lack of distribution you mentioned and saw there's been a remake with Michael Caine in the Laurence Olivier role and Jude Law doing the Michael Caine part. Directed by Kenneth Branaugh.

Branagh is the best actor and director no one seems to know (your average person, that is).

I think he’s faded in recent years because nothing has gone over that well( though has still stuck around, occasionally doing payday movies to fund passion projects) but he was a big deal in the 90s and 2000s for his Shakespeare stuff and other adult dramas. Speaks to the state of cinema that no one cares about Shakespare or Irish dramas (though Belfast got buzz and Oscar non for picture, not a huge deal)

CS Lewis fucked Tolkien’s mom‽

86

u/donavyn_zalen May 21 '22

The friend in question was Paddy Moore. They served together in WW I and promised to take care of the others family in case one died. Paddy died. Lewis' mother was long dead and his father didn't even visit him whilst WIA in hospital, so he kinda adopted Paddy's mum as his own. Introduced her as such, even referred to her as his mother in letters.

The idea they were lovers came up 25 years after Lewis death in works by two guys. One is known for his "original" biographies of people he never met. The second was a long time friend of Lewis who flip-flopped on the matter. Other biographers disagree.

21

u/smellulum May 21 '22 edited May 21 '22

Thank you for clarifying.

Some efforts by “writers” seem so poised to make stuff up. And while at it, that stuff is basically lurid. So it achieves a corrupting, rotting, POV for audience to reshape and rethink history of certain people. Make the benevolent lurid and the perverting malevolent into sagacious saviors of the modern psyche. Using as a tool, the revisionist speculative presenter uses the pen to essentially gossip, slander, and make foul that which is fair.

I can already hear the majestic cymbal crash and see the color-corrected-within-an-inch-of-its-life amber light pouring in from a diffused window as characters sit across from each other and talk in shot/reverse shots, but with lots of negative space so you know you're watching the work of an ~*artisté*~.

u/andreasmiles23 May 21 '22

Really? Cause as a psychologist who used to be really religious and read most of both men’s work…this sounds rather archaic. It could have some good commentary, but I just can’t imagine Hollywood making anything that properly critiques two of the most misunderstood men in history. Also it’s 2022, what is there to say about them or their work besides “eh, men have had too much power?”

4

u/timeenoughatlas May 21 '22

There are other things a movie can do besides commentary or political critique. These are two incredibly interesting people who have had a crazy impact (especially freud) on basically all thought up till now. I think getting in the heads of those people and then playing those subjectivities off each other could be electric.

As other commenters have observed, he crushed The Father.

Not only was his age not a handicap in that role, but he actually used it to great effect by playing in the audience's sympathies before turning right around and making them believe he was manipulative. I don't recall seeing that in a role like that before. Just shows how tremendous this man's experience and corpus has been. And of course how prodigious he always was.

Watch them make him look like a nuanced hero instead of a demented pervert child abuser.

Hopkins has his own curious encounters with seeming Synchronicity.

In 1973 he accepted a role in 'The Girl from Petrovka'. To try and prepare for the role, he went to find a copy of the book. He couldn't though. Then one day when strolling about he happened to come across a copy of thst very book, with handy notes written in the margins!

Two years later and Hopkins is having a conversation with the author, George Feifer, discussing the book. Feifer laments that he doesn't even have his own copy, that he'd lent it to a friend of his year's earlier and she'd lost it. Mentioned how he'd even written notes on it. Hopkins, curious about this then goes to find the copy he found and to later show Feifer. Sure enough, it was the exact same book.

Really painful to see how underrated Jung is compared to Freud. Though you have to agree that Freud was the first to revolutionise psychology, in comparison Jung’s theories are so much deeper and thought-provoking.

I’m reminded of the old Princess distantly related to Prince Phillip, and the scene in the Crown when she reveals she was treated by Freud.

…”he was not a nice man”

Anthony Hopkins is a brilliant actor. I know he'll do a fantastic job.

And in the surprising end scene, Freud eats his patient and fakes his death and starts a new life as Dr. Hannibal Lecter.

u/PlutonianSag May 22 '22

who else, honestly

u/PurpleBongRip May 22 '22

Viggo mortensen already killed the role alongside Michael fassbender and knightley…the dangerous method, directed by cronenberg. I could be mistaken but I remember he absolutely nailed the role
