These pictures are fabulous Deenan and he just looks so good! 

I'm posting from work (shhh...) where it's easier to view all the pics quickly.  He looks so comfortable and relaxed; I think he looks a little less thin but maybe it's just his clothing.

Thanks for the article Deenan, apparently Elijah's best role for a long time? Interesting, that.  The pictures are beautiful. I think he does look a little less thin, in his face as well as his body....

there is so much going on with this film, it's hard to keep up.

there are premiere photos,




videos,

http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2008/01/17/videos/1200595672.html


more photos,






excellent reviews,

"First of all, De la Iglesia is in top form, and his staging is majestic from start to finish. Shot in Steadicam, a camera that seems to float around the characters, and follows a natural rhythm to insinuate itself into the most intimate of scenes. The whole thing is capped off by Roque Baņos' excellent score and the polished cinematography of Kiko de la Rica, who lensed The Community and Lucia and Sex. How great that De la Iglesia sets his thriller in Oxofrd and its surroundings. The locations are well-used and create a strangle rustic atmostphere plucked straight from Hot Fuzz, made up of opulent and half-empty buildings, creaky wood furniture, and well-manicured gardens."

"...the actors are excellent, especially the duo of Wood/Hurt, who engage in a most accomplished psychological love/hate battle. Leonor Watling, symbol of Good in this story, is utterly delicious as the nurse caught between the two geniuses."


and

"Alex's film is spectacular. It's got an opening to make you shake in your boots. The opening sequence, without actually being original (it could have been filmed and signed by Hitchcock) is one of those that reconciles you with cinema, and which, set in a bullfight stadium, would garner an Ole!

The film is a mystery, an attractive and light mixture of mathematics and murder on the Oxford campus, with a sinister teacher played by John Hurt, and a quick-witted scholarship student played by Elijah Wood."


thanks so much to serai for translating these and many others. 


it's been a good overload for the past few weeks.  you should check out the main page for these and a lot more.

btw, the movie made about $3.2 million dollars over the weekend in madrid!

It is a very nice film with some awesome escenes. It is very dialogue based.
In my town only the doubled version was available in theaters, so I lost part of the actors perfomances but anyway, I think they made a great job, especially John Hurt and Elijah Wood.
The director used Elijah's eyes very conveniently!

Thanks deenan, I know they're kind of spoilers but I do love seeing the stills.....I think the use of darkness is pretty interesting in these shots.

Great interview that one, thanks! Elijah always articulates himself very well, but this sounded particularly well-thought out.  Its interesting that he says Alex was such a big factor in him deciding to take the role.
