CHRISTIAN "the incredible lightness of" BALE


Okay, I posted a few entries ago on Christian Bale and his need to lighten up by tripping on a banana peel. I need to add that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Mr. Bale. A lot. Too much, probably. That said, I have since looked at some more of his work. To be specific, I looked at several scenes from his film, "American Psycho". I said I looked at various scenes because I couldn't watch the entire movie. Because?....I am a wuss. It was just too dark for me. And guess what? I'm majoring in psychology!!! DING DING DING. Hey Deb, your common sense called, it wants to talk to you about your degree program of choice....

Anyway, I visited YouTube and looked at some of the scenes where Bale's character begins to "go off"...a little left of center...where he starts to unravel...where not quite all of his dogs are barking...*add your own euphemism for crazy here*...

And you know, he's capable of lite. He's capable of funny. He's capable of anything. The boy has range. BIG range. I think he can do anything he wants to. The problem is, to enjoy it through the roles he takes, you have to go through a veritable black, suck-pit of muddy tar to view the field of brilliant poppies...that's what it feels like...maybe one day I'll be able to hack that....ewwwww....don't use the word "hack" and Christian Bale in the same paragraph....no bueno.....
