Wow, really nice pictures, Thomas looks so relaxed and happy! Positive energy after a job well done.

Funnily enough, just watched this again at the weekend - poor cow (the actual cow, not his wife!!).  Still a great film 👍

Sorry guys, haven't here in a while...lots going on! Hope the gang is all doing great and of course to you to TJ!

I did see this...really enjoyed it on the whole. What I really liked about it was I have never seen anything quite like this before.

Would anyone agree? Has there anything quite close to this out there?

This is another great flick to add to TJ's performances :)

Hello Sunshine, how good to have you back! I'm fond of experimented RAW forumers who can spread their wisdom and lead the way into Jane's universes. I saw Rosella asked a question for you during the Q&A 🙂 so you've not  been away so long finally 😉

Hi Sunshine! 👋 Good to see you back on the boards!  I have to admit a fondness for Stephen King stories in general, and having TJ in the starring role just made it even sweeter.  I love his portrayal of a slow descent into guilt induced madness,  how can such a sweet guy pull off such a disturbing performance.....😟. Guess that’s just a great actor doing his thing!  Hope you’re gonna be around for a while Sunshine 😀

Just come across this showing some of the SFX used - considering the subject, be warned of some gore effects towards the end!  I found it fascinating though.

Oops - correction, should have read VFX not SFX (apologies to Ariane who has previously gone to the trouble of educating us on the difference between the two!)

I've FINALLY been able to watch 1922 tonight 👍🏻 great movie, it feels like I'm in trance right now. The slow pace, the snow storm, the background voice and this river of rats...

Ah, you know I love details and here are a few that struck me.

- When Wil sees his wife going to bed and decides to turn away... the very next shot he's holding and "opening" a corn in the most suggestive way... is it because I'm French or did Gail leave her mark on me? Anyway, before you know it, he's snapping the "corn" in two and throwing it apart. A symbol for the whole plot, very elegantly placed.

- When he's shaving and observing his family through the window pane. The image is blurred, which fits well with the fact that he's "spying", but it also occured to me that in 1922, float glass had not been invented yet. So it's also historically true to not see well through a window pane.

- And during that same scene... I LOVED the 2 flies strolling around on his mirror. So real and true!

- Finally, you may have noticed that several months ago, a prosthesis artist has posted a picture of Wilf's left arm on Insta. It's only visible for a few seconds in the movie but required days of work! I'd love to hear Tom tell us if it was freakingly similar to his own arm.

In any case I am thankful for the crew creating all these details to make a movie feel like a real experience. Well done!

And thanks Gail for the VFX video, impressive!

I'm glad you've finally seen this Ariane and happy that you enjoyed it so much.  I didn't really know what to expect but since it was a Stephen King story, I knew there'd be blood!  Thomas's performance, both physical and vocal, was stunning, and the attention to detail and VFX are brilliant.  In my opinion, this film should be far better known than it is.

Hopefully it's because you're French - otherwise the effect I'm having isn't exactly wholesome 😳

You are more than welcome (makes a change for me to actually contribute something interesting like that! 😉)
