(In an interview with director, Alice Winocour)
Q: Your camera is “looking” at the male character in a very probing way. How did gender impact on your narrative and visual strategies?
Alice Winocour: “I wanted to film Matthias Schoenaerts in a way to arouse desire, the same way men have been doing with women traditionally. But I hope I did more than that, not just film him as an object of desire but as a character with his complexity.”
The film is called ‘Disorder’ (2015). “Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, a security guard (Matthias Schoenaerts) utilizes his training as a French special forces soldier to protect the wife and son of a shady Lebanese businessman.”
So before any of you go batshit with the title, the dude literally has ptsd, so chill.
I like, really love this movie, but the way Matthias Schoenaerts looks in this, is SO GOOD. Like I don’t mean to just base the film on his appearance, but just the way the camera films him — it’s like the camera really does love him. Alice girl, you did that. So I just decided to edit a compilation of basically most of the times the camera is on him lmfao
ya know that tumblr meme w/ the cinnamon roll? this is what this man is in this film, “Looks like they could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll”
