Shadow Dancer very shortly

I went to see Shadow Dancer yesterday. It got mostly great reviews and I was quite curious to see the movie. Loved it. Absolutely worth watching. Small and melancholic movie focusing on people instead of terrorism or IRA and it does not take sides. Clive was an agent once again - quite similar to his role in International. His character was only seen through his work - no hints of his background nor his personal life. Andrea Riseborough as Colette was fantastic.


Okay, this is totally useless information, but I will write it anyways. The film is really, really good and I would have liked it without Clive in it. But he sure was in it. He looked ABSOLUTELY gorgeous, he looked like himself - hair, tie, the navy suit - exactly like on the red carpet. It kind of distracted me a bit, I thought that I will probably see that burgundy tie as well. There were a lot of close-up shots - A  LOT. That was fantastic of course. A woman close to her 60's in front of me took two photos of Clive on the screen. Funny - she happened to take photos of close-ups I liked as well. I should have asked her to send the photos to me as well :).

No shirtless scenes - unfortunately.

No shirtless shots. Damn. *laughs* I'm so glad to read that the film is that good! I still want to see it myself but looks like I must wait on the DVD release. Funny that a woman took photos of him in the theater! And no burgundy tie?? *laughs* Pity. *gg*

Yeah - he should have been shirtless. He would have been such a sexy shirtless agent. The close-ups of him looked so good on the big screen, that I was not surprised that the woman took photos. I think I have never seen anyone taking photos in the theater before - I thought it was forbidden. I hope you get to see the film soon.

Great film like I said. I really hope you will see more of him than just a top of his head. Luckily he is very tall.

Like I commented on the board, I've seen him twice in Toronto in september 2011. Photos are posted on my journal, if you want to take a look. He was handsome as ever, but not very fan friendly. Probably he just had a bad day when they had the screening of Intruders or he was disappointed to see just a handful of people waiting for him.

Luckily George Clooney was the friendliest man in the planet and was really worth waiting. He signed every paper and photo given to him. He talked with everyone too. And OMG his eyes!

There were a lot of beautiful close ups of him in the movie. I guess it was the director's way to show his and Andrea Riseborough's emotions.
