10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

Would you rather?  

Haven't done an Instagram share for a couple of weeks so here are some celeb photos, arranged in our typical Would you rather fashion...  

• compare muscles with Mark Ruffalo & Chris Hemsworth?
• sip aperol with Naomi Watts?
• sail away with Neil Patrick Harris?
• reminisce about your first Oscars with Rossy de Palma?
• stretch it out with Aint to Proud to Beg's James Harkness?
• cosplay Star Wars with Brie Larson?
• attend Moulin Rouge! on Broadway with Baz himself?
• cool down with Morena Baccarin?
• peel bananas with Cazwell?
• appreciate nature with Daryl Hannah? 
• adopt your first puppy with Nicole Kidman? 

Pictures are after the jump to help you decide.

Mood when #SDCC is over but also when @chrishemsworth insists on comparing muscles 💪😣  #throwback

My first puppy... actually my first dog. Been waiting my whole life for this! 🐶

(Actually y'all I feel a bit betrayed by this last one. I totally understood our darling Nicole to be a fellow crazy cat lady! P.S. Big Little Lies finale post coming tonight, so watch it today if you've fallen behind!)

If I have to come back as a dog, please let me be adopted by Nicole Kidman.

I identify with NPH. He seems to oscillate between resignation to his cookie-cutter life and yearning for space to let his freak flag fly. The conundrum of every comfortably settled gay man!

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterGeorge

Sawyer -- more relatable words were never spoken.

George -- this is the most sympathetic of all reads of NPH. well done.

July 23, 2019 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

Baz Luhrmann turning into Burt Reynolds is quite unexpected, to say the least.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue

For a second I thought NPH was Luke Evans. Is the moustache for a role or just a midlife crisis?

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRyan

Tough choice among Brie, Baz, and Baccarin. On the one hand, Brie just seems like a hoot to hang out with. On the other hand, MOULIN ROUGE WITH BAZ. And on my third hand, I'd like to fanboy Baccarin a bit.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRyan T.

Luhrmann has done more shit to his face than Kidman.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMuriel

Mark and Chris I can't tell from the picture who has bigger muscles. Perhaps you need to come over for a closer inspection.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTom G.

Tom G -- smart thinking.

Muriel -- he really has. started to be noticeable around GATSBY time and he's definitely kept at it.

July 23, 2019 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

I'm obsessed with flexible men, so hello, James Harkness.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTroy H.

I think Naomi would be my choice. I feel like Baz would be insufferable to be around.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterChoog

It's really hot that NPH is a bitchy/thirsty queen under the vanilla persona TV networks and celeb magazines have crafted for him. Whenever he does something remotely impolitic (that absurd feud Rachel Bloom started last year) people jump all over it like he's a secret creep/asshole. I bet he's more fun to be around than lots of out celebs.

If anyone can't handle his tweets or thirst traps then heaven help them at a tea dance.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterGeorge

Oh, do Star Wars cosplaying w/ Brie Larson, cool down w/ Morena Baccarin, be a cabana boy for both Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts while trying to create a buddy comedy for them, and compare the muscles of Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth. We know Hemsworth would win but I'm sure the years of doing films for the MCU!!!! has given Ruffalo some muscles.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterthevoid99

Baz isn't smiling because the musical does not do justice to his movie. Saw it last week and while there are exceptionally high points (Aaron Tviet) there are a lot of misses - mostly when the plot deviates from the film.

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMark

Mr Hemsworth will win every time

July 23, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

I'm gonna wear some short-pants, a sunglasses and stay between Naomi Watts and Neil Patrick Harris.
