Finest hour.

Last night, I finally got to see Gary Oldman playing Churchill in Darkest Hour. It was possibly the finest performance I’ve ever seen from any actor in anything. How this skinny bloke from a Deptford council estate transformed himself into Winston Churchill is almost miraculous and it’d be a travesty if he doesn’t get an Oscar. I’ve been a huge fan since I first saw him thirty years ago in Sid & Nancy playing the ill-fated punk singing lead vocals on this. I had to keep reminding myself that this was the same person. In every film he does, Gary Oldman really is something else.
