A tweeter tweeted that 'Jake was really good' but that the film was unfinished, although it did have some music in it. An unfinished film is not a film at its best and so there are criticisms. 'Weird and confusing'. But to distract from that are 'a few love scenes'. Thanks to Mermon for the link!
Meanwhile, Prisoners continues filming in Atlanta. You can read here of details of interior sets and night time filming. At this rate, Jake and Hugh Jackman will becoming quite a fixture in the streets of Atlanta.
On Monday, End of Watch was released on DVD and blu ray in the UK. This prompted Female First - longtime fans and supporters of Jake - to take a look at Jake's Top 10 films in chronological order. I especially like what the article has to say about Brokeback Mountain:
'Brokeback Mountain remains the best performance of Gyllenhaal's career to date as he and Heath Ledger lit up the big screen. The role of Jack Twist was a bold one for Gyllenhaal but it paid off as this is a rich and moving story that placed the gay love story in the mainstream. Both Gyllenhaal and Ledger deliver devastating performances as two men who struggle to hide what they truly are - this was a masterful movie.'
No mention for Zodiac but then you can't have everything. An interesting collection of films which shows just how varied Jake's career has been to date.
Thanks to IHJ for new old pictures, including extra ones from what has to be the worst ever of Jake's photoshoots! As such, it's one of my favourites. There are also photos from Jake's appearance in 2000 at the premiere of Leo DiCaprio's The Beach.
