If you make a movie like Albert Nobbs, you can be sure that there will be knuckleheads like me who become obsessed with it for all the wrong reasons. I’m sure Glenn Close is great, she always is. I’m sure the movie, about an Irish woman who dressed as a man, is uplifting and powerful. I like how Glenn Close is addressing her more loutish critics, like “Okay, you want to call me ‘mannish’? Fuck you, I’m gonna go all the way in on it and get an Oscar for it then.” I don’t mean much disrespect by focusing on Albert Nobbs with less than reverence. But I just can’t escape how much Albert Nobbs resembles so many prominent male actors…
In fact, when I saw the poster for Albert Nobbs, the first thing I thought of was one of my very favorite movie posters…
Woops! Not that one.
Anyway. I’m a dick. I’m really not sure why any woman would want to blend in amidst my species.
But I did do a drawing.
