You got an error message because I reposted it, having made a little screw-up. But you got a reply notice for the deleted first post. When you clicked it, there was nothing to reply to! You should have got another reply notice, which looked just like it.

I am happy for people to take away the screencaps; I put them up meaning to share. But I do appreciate it when people using them for public posts say where they got them. I do make, select, crop and tweak them all individually, so although they belong to New Line Cinema, I did put a lot of time into them.

As for the bulge, as we both seem to agree, what a man's got is what we want, because the man we want has got it. (Whew!)

And, ah, now I see what you mean about the little wave. I always liked the little wave just because it gave a better peep at that cute little torso.

But don't you worry, I'm not slouch at the rest. I always have an eye out for the slightest protrusion. In the latest scans posted for the "Nylon" article (what an encouraging article, too!), I noticed and appreciated at once the great-looking three-piece suit, but at the same time I noticed the attractively projecting fabric in the crotch area. "What's under there?" I could not help conjecturing. I doubt I shall ever find out, since he's unlikely to drop his trousers on stage, on screen, or at a fan convention. But we'll see more than we usually get to see in The Passenger (should it be made and get distribution!). So I remain hopeful. Exceedingly. :)

"what a man's got is what we want, because the man we want has got it. (Whew!)" LOVE IT!!! You're so right!

Of course i'd credit you if i ever used your caps.. i tend to forget where i get things, as i'm really greedy when it comes to his pictures ( and who woldn't be!! ) and save everything i can get my hands on, not always cataloguing them properly..but i've saved yours to a separate folder so there'll be no doubt. Thanks for being ok about it.

He may be lacking in embarrassment ( or he used to be anyway) when showing off his tattoo and talking about his body ailments and functions...but i have no doubt whatsoever that we'll NEVER get to see what's under the trousers..we can only imagine, conjecture and dream!! But as you say..there's the 'sex' scene in The OMs and the Passenger to look forward to..where we may just get a glimpse of unchartered territory..i hope so!

The "uncharted territory" I'm dying to see in those movies, even more than exposed flesh, is a convincing portrayal by Elijah as a lover. So far, I haven't seen him play desire or passion well except directed towards the Ring. How I would love him to be able to come across as a "real man" in terms of being someone who can give and receive erotically-charged love. I'd love it as a fan of his acting, but also as a fan of him, himself -- a scrumptious person.

"I would love him to be able to come across as a "real man" in terms of being someone who can give and receive erotically-charged love."
I quite agree.. All we've seen so far hasn't really fired the imagination much..although the open mouthed kiss plus tongue scene in All I Want, with Debbie Harry did go some way to stir something in me, especially played in slow motion..lol! But he was a mere child then comparitively..

Alex was full of praise for his 'performance' in the sex scene in the OMs..

". I didn't want to film Last Tango [in Paris], but I did want something powerful, something to explain how happy two young people can be when they desire each other. Humbly, I do believe we've achieved that."

Sounds quite promising don't you think???

Yes, Alex's remarks sound *quite* promising, as if they'd manage to capture a bed scene (or floor or wherever it takes place) that actually registers as real on film: pleasureable, passionate, with the characters interrelating in a convincing way. Which is *just* what I've wanted to see.

EW's had a lot more experience since his last bed scene -- as a person, as an actor, and as a real-life sex partner (although from what I've read, he was by no means unpracticed by the time he made AiW). In AiW, he *looked* as though he had had almost no experience, but my guess is he was directed to play the scenes that way, since the character he played was untried. I hope that was the reason, anyway, as the reason for his onscreen amorous ineptitude and non-involvement.

The AiW scene with Debbie Harry was played for laughs, so I don't count that. But in his scene with Mandy Moore (whom he might actually have bedded, before moving on to Franka Potente), I could only think he was directed to play the scene as mildly curious. (I'd rather blame it on the direction than on him.) His character certainly kissed her with no apparent desire and no apparent pleasure, other than pleasure with himself that he had been able to make it with the neighbour, if even that. His kissing was completely mechanical (I thought), as if he had been coached to play it with inner dialogue like this: "Oh, I guess I should act passionate, now; I'll poke my tongue around for a while -- people always think tongue action is passionate." In the scenes with Franka Potente (who I thought turned in the only really nuanced, believable performance in the film), I found watching his character almost unbearable. Here he was, having his Big Moment, with the woman he had been pursuing for half of the film, and there he was submitting to her embraces as if she might kill him, so fearful did he seem. Nervousness would be normal, but the fear he conveyed was a fear which precluded desire. He seemed terrified, again going through the motions of making love, but without the feeling. When she bent to kiss him and he raised his head, straining to meet her, the way he opened his mouth, with his pointy tongue darting about, reminded me of a baby bird waiting to receive its worm.

As you may guess, I disliked 'All I Want' as a film very much, was deeply disappointed in EW's performance as an actor in it, and thought the character he played was an utter waste of time to portray.

I will say that the screencaps made from these scenes (that I so cringe over when they are actually playing as a scene), look quite good. As screencaps, since no movie is playing, I can imagine whatever I want happening. What I want ("all I want"?) happening is this: scenes in which the characters actually make some sort of real contact with each other, convincing me of their desire for each other. Is that such a lot to ask?

Well, I do apologize, Bellewood! As you can see, I got rather exercised talking about 'All I Want', a film that is towards the top of my "Turkeys I have seen" list.

I am TREMENDOUSLY hopeful about the love/sex scene in 'The Oxford Murders'. With a better director, a better character, a better script, and an older Elijah -- in the midst of a happy long-term love affair with a sensual-looking, good-natured-looking woman -- the scene might just be good! Very good! And, if it is, I am sure I will be a repeat viewer of the movie. :)
