Flesh


The art book of the film ‘Pacific Rim’ is called ‘Man, Machines, and Monsters’. This post, combined with the previous, should be called ‘Monsters, Metals, and Flesh’. In my opinion, Idris Elba was such a strong presence in the movie that he emerged as the star of the film. This, however, doesn’t diminish the star power of Charlie Hunnam.

I thought I first saw Charlie Hunnam in the delightful but under-rated film version of Charles Dickens’ ‘Nicholas Nickleby’. He reminded me of Heath Ledger, although his face was ‘prettier’.

However, I soon realized that Charlie had appeared in the TV series ‘Queer as Folk’ where he played the lovelorn jailbait Nathan Maloney. That was a great performance, by the way, and not just because he was almost always shirtless, or nude, in many of his scenes.

The next time I saw Charlie was when he had a small role in ‘Children of Men’. He’s barely recognizable because of all that hair but his smile is the same.

Then came ‘Sons of Anarchy’, which brought Charlie Hunnam to fame. I’m not a fan of the show, though. Maybe I should start watching it now. Hmn…

It seemed that Charlie has a predilection for having his pictures taken while he is shirtless. Consider this:

In my previous post, I wrote that Charlie Hunnam ought to be shirtless all the time. Well, a singlet will do. We don’t want him catching a cold, do we?
