So many details are researched and wrought when a movie is made.
Because they know we’ll be watching.
With an eagle eye.
And their eye for detail and realism is fanatical.
It has to be. For the close-up.
In The King’s Speech, whenever Colin Firth went to his speech therapist’s office, I was completely mesmerized.
By that wall.
And while I’ve been obsessed with it all this time, I’ve kind of wondered why no one else has mentioned it out here in blogland, at least to my knowledge.
Was I off? Was my obsession weird?
Are we just so sick of faux, that even great faux is too much?
I have to say...
I am still obsessed with that wall.
The colorful mosaic of peeled wallpaper that served as the backdrop behind Colin Firth’s head was an incredible work of art.
I’m totally obsessed.
And I want to do it. With a twist. Somewhere.
