Venus in Fur sans watermark FULL VIDEO
So thanks to one amazing tumblr user who wanted to stay anonymous, I got access to the full recording of Venus in Fur staring Nina Arianda and Hugh Dancy. It’s the same bootleg that has been floating around divided into three parts, but in the original quality, with no missing bits and without any watermarks. I didn’t post it right away because I couldn’t decide whether it’d be better to keep it private, or just make it public for everybody to download. I’m chosing the latter since I’m wayyy too lazyy to send messages to all you people. If you guys see any issues with the copyright etc. feel free to send me a message, because I don’t know shit about redistributing bootlegs like that. One thing was for sure, I just couldn’t keep this glorious video all to myself. Enjoy :D
22.07.2014 update: It’s been a lot of downloads and now file appears to be broken, so the preview and the video to which it links won’t work any more. Use the NEW link above in order to download the video. Let me know if there are any more errors.
#*the love of his life
#the way Eriks face just drops though
#so erik grew up his entire life #thinking he was a freak and a monster #and no one could possibly care for nor understand nor love him #and charles comes into his life #and changes all of that #and gives him hope and shows him serenity and offers him love #and at the end of all that#even after he initially betrays charles #erik believes he’s doing the right thing #the /good/ thing #until this moment#when he hurts charles #with more than a punch or a betrayal #he’s sent to his knees screaming in agony #and erik realises #that although he thinks his path is the right one#he’s not a good person and he knows that #he’s /still/ a monster #because he wasn’t thinking charles is hurt and he’s /still a monster/ #he always was #always will be (via thedetectivedoesntdance)
And not to add to the train of pain and agony here, but think about the parallel between Charles getting shot and Erik’s mother getting shot. Both happen behind his back, both are tied to him using his powers (or rather, his inability to move the coin as a child—even though his mother’s death is not in ANY way Erik’s fault, Shaw has still tied it to his ability in the most painful and appalling way). I cannot imagine the horror of Erik hearing Charles cry out, and knowing, knowing that when he turns around Charles will be hurt, possibly dead. And reliving the horror of his mother’s death all over again. That’s part of what I see in his expression—the agony of that memory, and the horror that comes with living it all over again as a grown man…and knowing that this time, the bullet came from his own hand.And to some extent, Erik *has* to be angry with Charles after this — because if he didn’t have the anger to shield him to some extent, he couldn’t bear it. I wonder whether Charles’ anger doesn’t spring from the same place; it’s easier to think “Erik is a monster” than to just face the tragedy of what happened between two people who loved each other.
He can deflect a bullet this time, but somehow it’s still not enough.
Moira’s a human who forced his hand. At that moment, she’s just like his past- Erik’s a monster, Erik cannot save those he loved. Erik’s power’s not enough…not yet.
It’s not exactly logical, but it does follow why his first instinct is to blame humans/Moira until Charles, as always, despite in pain, brings him back to the present, brings Erik back to himself, even if it’s unpleasant.
But Erik can’t really face himself yet. That will take a while.
How dare you. How dare you! You thought you could dupe some poor, willing, idiot actress and bend her to your program, didn’t you. Create your own little female frankenstein monster. You thought that you could use me to insult me?
