“Things are getting worse not better. I think I might be passive depressive”, Art Freeman

Thinking about the upcoming treat of Robert singing “Honeybun” in #Damsel (you know we should be hearing about that imminently) had me reminiscing about Art and “Chokin’ on Dust”.  I just adore this film – so I thought I would kickstart Monday with a little walk down memory lane with Art.

Robert on playing Art

“It’s that you can never tell if it is supposed to be funny or whether you are supposed to like, and it’s not even like a sort of kind of black comedy, it’s like… I don’t know, it’s just something really weird. Because in a lot of ways, Art’s a completely unsympathetic character, he’s just like a whining idiot. But at the same time, like, you know, you watch so many movies where there’s a character arc where, you know you end up you’re an ‘everyman’ but then you sort of struggle through your problems and then you end up being great to the end, but hardly anybody does anything worthwhile in their lives…” (during a Q&A session in Austin Film Festival)

Art Freeman was definitely a hint at the type of characters Rob was hoping to play.  And haven’t we been treated to some great performances.  And speaking of treated – how great was the BTS footage that was shared, especially since BTS footage leads to gifs – like the ones below:

and we had a plethora of stills – like these
