"Potter has done too much for me for me to ever want to shit all over it. I’m never going to say: ‘Don’t ask me questions about that’. I remember reading an interview with Robert Smith from The Cure. Somebody said to him: ‘Why do you still wear all that makeup, don’t you feel a bit past it?’ And he said: ‘There are still 14-year-olds coming to see The Cure for the first time, dressed like that. I’d never want to make them feel silly.’ It’s a similar thing with Potter. People are still discovering those books and films. It would be awful for them to find out the people involved had turned their backs on it. Though sometimes, people do come up and say ‘I loved you in The Woman in Black,’ which is really sweet. That’s them knowing that it matters to me that I’ve done other stuff."

As soon as life returns to normal, so will you. Back from the dead.
Not without you.

"Male privilege may be more obvious in other cultures, but in so-called Western culture it’s still ubiquitous. In fact, it’s so ubiquitous that it’s invisible. It is so pervasive as to be normalized, and so normalized as to be visible only in its absence. The vast, vast, vast majority of institutions, spaces, and subcultures privilege male interests, but because male is the default in this culture, such interests are very often considered ungendered. As a result, we only really notice when something privileges female interests."

Ezra Miller for Paper Magazine by Autumn De Wilde

the worst thing about treating those combat boys from the great war wasn’t that they had their flesh torn; it was that they had their souls torn out. i don’t want to look into your eyes someday and see no spark, no love, no.. no life. that would break my heart.

Look who Re-Assembled w/ the Newbies @CCSD! (x)

It’s no coincidence that the man at the head of the train is a deified white patriarch, mirrored perfectly by John Hurt’s Gilliam as the working class leader. Together, they keep everything aligned with their warped sense of “balance,” and groom Curtis to become a similar leader once they’re gone. The great thing is that despite his eventual heroism and self-sacrifice, Curtis really is a good choice of replacement for Wilford.

For all that we get to see that fantastic breakdown monologue at the end, we already know that Curtis is violent and fueled by revenge, that he doesn’t trust himself as a leader, that he’s the kind of person who would keep his followers in the dark in order to “protect” them (hello, cockroach soup), and that he would rather strategically capture an enemy than save the life of his best friend.

Every one of these actions and character traits is understandable, but Curtis is still not sufficiently different from Wilford or Gilliam to give us much hope for a potential future with him in charge. Curtis’s rags-to-riches journey through the train even resembles what little we know of Wilford, who went from being a normal boy to the most powerful man on the planet.
