Note: This is an archived entry that’s several years old. While I have ensured that all photos are restored, some links may no longer work. If you encounter any dead links, let me know and I’ll try to find a copy of the material. Some entries may not be up to my current standards as far as photo source and other credits are concerned; if you are a photographer or writer of a piece that lacks appropriate acknowledgement, please let me know and I’ll be happy to add source info.
For informational background on these, read my prior Hugonuts entry from earlier today. Warning: the following set of photos could be construed as spoilery, so I’ll put most behind a cut… they give me a much greater idea of who at least one of Hugo Weaving’s six characters in the film might be, but I’ll abstain from specifics because I know a lot of potential viewers either haven’t read the novel, or don’t want plot details spoiled this far in advance. I’ll also warn you that this sequence of the film is set in the 1970s, so it involves some very questionable hairstyles.
