Last Hannibal post. This scene. This scene.
I study costuming so I’m always looking at what characters are wearing but after watching this series I am constantly aware of the small things. The dialogue, the words the actors say, and the words that are left floating on the air unsaid but heard anyway. It’s the subtle things; the dramatic lighting. In this scene it’s the red ribbons, the profile of the singer lunged forward.
This whole series is (albeit rather gory at times) an operatic feast for the eyes.
