But it's balanced with the great acting, particularly from the women on the show; it's a joy to watch them interact with each other, establishing a camaraderie among the women who work the area—and have to watch out for each other.
It's a beautiful moment, and it shows why Gyllenhaal is so fantastic in this role—one that should earn her an Emmy nomination next year.
But Candy's vulnerability is brief; she walks into her building after saying goodbye to Jack, and then she walks right back out—wearing shorter shorts and with her wig in her hand—off to work for the night.
Jake Gyllenhaal, a hot weirdo whose name I will never learn to spell because of Google autocomplete, stars in a new Calvin Klein ad as a very hot dad whom we all want to bone.
He looks like a sexy ex-con from the 1950s who just got released and is ready to straighten up and fly right.
You’ll recall, Cary shot a promo for In a new interview with W Magazine to promote his collaboration with Calvin Klein, Jake says that what motivates him now is the opportunity to work with interesting people and it’s cool if that’s cool but doing what’s cool isn’t the goal. That said, I also like the timing of this release, a few weeks after and now that he’s one of the several actors in position to take the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Best Actor Oscar nomination spots behind the two frontrunners Gary Oldman and Daniel Day-Lewis (whose movie is still in post and doesn’t come out until Christmas and very little is known about it but Paul Thomas Anderson directed and DDL gets a nod every time he opens his mouth), the Eternity campaign, which certainly doesn’t take away from his brand, won’t hurt, not at all.
cummings, read by Jake Gyllenhaal and Liya Kebede, directed by Cary Fukunaga. I can’t decide if it’s kind or cruel that Jake and Cary are now collaborators.We don't learn anything about her death in particular; instead, Candy and Ruby tell us everything they knew about her: how sweet she was, how hard she worked, how she had a favorite perfume and nearly bathed in it every day.The point, of course, is that Candy and Ruby didn't know much about Nicki other than what she was on the surface.In Episode Four, a john dies while she's blowing him, which earns her the new nickname"Mouth of Death." She cringes when the pimps in the diner give her a standing ovation after the news of her dead date spread, slowly sauntering out and offering a quiet "fuck you" to the gleeful crowd.But we don't see any real emotion there—sadness, grief, embarrassment, remorse—because the nature of Candy's work has forced her to hide those emotions.'s slow-rolling plot.Her emotions don't keep her from being practical., the other major plot—grounded by James Franco's dual role as Vincent and Frank—is a little more unwieldy. And their both deep into conflicts with their family, the Italian mob, and the people who pour into the Hi-Hat, which is already becoming something like the Cheers of I care far less about what the Francos are up to, which feels like tedious plotting that I'm sure will all make sense eventually, when we have Maggie Gyllenhaal turning out such a great performance as Candy.
