Tom Hiddleston in Archipelago (2010)
I really think I’m doing the wrong thing.
Day 8/10: Is there a character and/or film that I dislike? Archipelago presents a difficult film for me to sit through. Edward seeks the justification of his family in his life decisions and allows his sister inordinate amounts of control, while the dreary setting leaves me depressed and without closure. With that mentioned, Tom Hiddleston portrays Edward with the appropriate measure of indecision and desire for independence. So, although I dislike the film, his acting remains wonderful.
Mr. Rogers, again. Someone asked me to place blame on the hair stylists and wardrobe people when it came to pictures like this from a film. So, I will attempt to do so now. Whoever put this outfit on Tom had a grandpa complex. It is shapeless, bland and really rounds out the whole Mr. Rogers look. The hair. Borderline mullet. Mullets should be illegal, they just should. Whoever put Toms hair like this probably has a mullet of their own that they are oh so proud of. Tom just needs a trim, a little more curl freedom, and new fucking outfit, and the world will be set right once again.
I personally have no issues with this ensemble. Yes it’s a little dorky. But come on. Are you even going to notice that sweater once you get his pants down and you’re straddling him on that counter? Just saying. And the hair? Looks like Wallander hair to me. Good stuff. I don’t even like blonde hair or curly hair or hair this length but Thomas wears it well. Perfect length to pull. Wow, yeah, this photo makes me totally fucking horny. But hey, that’s just me.
um. if you watch the movie it makes more sense. and hun i agree with you ^^^
Except Edward’s wardrobe serves as characterization.
He dresses in a manner indicative of a father-figure, which emphasizes the poor relationship he shares with his own father. In many ways, Edward fills the role of a nurturing parent towards his mother and sister and his baggy clothing demonstrates that circumstances burden him with responsibilities and difficulties beyond his years and emotional capacity. Not to mention, his formless ensembles reflect a lack of security in his own skin; throughout the film, Edward struggles to discover his identity and his outfits exemplify his insecure, conflicted personality.
I just saw a negative post about the film Archipelago and I wanted to share my thoughts on the subject (shocker there, right).
Just a note: this gets pseudo-analytical and I haven’t seen the film in a few months so some details are either neglected or vague
