uk gift to the world – english lessons January 17, 2008

Gordon Brown’s new idea. But I hope they are better at teaching English than they are at producing videos. Brown has odd quirks when speaking straight at the camera, and why does he have half a mantlepiece sticking out of his head?

I have the impression the director told him what to do and Brown followed the instruction to the letter.

OK, Gordon, smile….not too much…
Serious, Gordon, serious…with concern….Lovely!

It’s the tics of the jaw that really do it. Those drops, the pauses, all unscripted and untimed. Must be the bane of the director’s life.

Why didn’t they do make up, costume, set design? It’s excruciating.
