Look, weird as this may seem, if the story has actions that are totally physically and conceptually outside one’s personal experience, I get why someone might do this. Being out alone in the wild, injured, dealing with the complete dark that can exist at night — where every sound gets magnified, when you jump just as much at the sound of a mouse in the leaves as you would at the sight of a wolf in the daylight or the smell of a bear — maybe it was beyond his imagination and he knew it.
(I can’t believe I’m defending, however obliquely, DeCrapio.)
But, my biggest complaint with human-vs-nature movies is often how unrealistic the people’s actions are. Haven’t seen this one, but if it helped his deliver of the character, I’m for it.
Yeah, it seems like a reasonable thing to do if the role needs it; but similarly, DiCaprio is one of those actors who’s never worked for me.
DiCaprio is the only actor who works for me. He’s number one without question.
So I have to ask: what research do you think he did for the painting scene in Titanic?
So you endorse his extreme Method acting, then?
James Cameron actually draws the sketch in that scene!
