The sadness of Kurt Hummel. Sketches over screenshots of TBH.
Because Chris’ acting reinvented it in yet another dimension with this episode, I feel, and it breaks my heart.
The slackness around his mouth. Not the still in control Kurt Hummel patented tight-lipped-smile hardened mask of a face, where only his eyes show his real hurt, but instead soft slack all-pretense-gone, unguided shock, sadness and vulnerability. Tired, defeated, no strength left to force a smile, a facade. So authentic. Effective-heart-crushing little detail. It gets me a lot in the scene with Finn, because it reveals so much about their relationship, and the dimension of Kurt’s pain. He looks so tired here, simple clothes, unguided Kurt, not even caring. And again that soft fallen face.
And then those eyes.
God, I love you, all the awards to you.
