I don’t even think ACD understood that when he wrote them - that it’s not just about the mysteries and the adventures, it’s about this guy who’s incredibly brilliant and a bit mad and damn near impossible to be around, and he’s probably already resigned himself to living alone and never meeting anyone who will understand him, and here comes this wounded army doctor with no real family to speak of, and very few friends, and for lack of anyone else they decide to flatshare, and it turns out to be the most significant relationship that either of them have for the rest of their lives.
(Yes, I know that was the longest run-on sentence in written history. It was intentional. Just go with it.)
Going with it and re-blogging again :)
I LOVE HER SHE IS SO UNIMPRESSED BY THE DOCTOR AND HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND HOW
Ruby Rhod is one of my favorite characters in sci-fi ever because he is Luc Besson’s vision of the hetero sex symbol of the future: a flamboyant, emotionally labile man who wears skin-tight leopard print or decks himself in roses, a man who accessorizes with big jewelry and dabbles in cosmetics. And the ladies love him. Everything about him screams “gay” according to our stereotypes, but he’s portrayed as a 100% straight sexual dynamo.
Besson is one of the few directors I’ve seen who actually recognizes that our ideas of sexuality and gender performance might have changed drastically in the future.
He also has one of the most jarring entrances in a movie. Like the entire movie screeches to a halt because he bursts onto the scene well into the second act and it’s so strange and arresting and Bruce Willis is just like “what the fuck is even going on anymore?”
It’s p. great.
