The first thing I noticed about Bradley Cooper in A star has been born This was how the stage lights complemented the caramel reflections in her greasy hair. The second thing I noticed about Bradley Cooper in A star has been born it was the little gray spots on his beard, how they indicated that maybe he was getting a little too old for these country rock things, but these country rock things were all he had. The third thing I noticed about Bradley Cooper in A star has been born it was how deep his voice was, how it sounded like gravel and spices, and every delicious vice. But the fourth thing that I noticed about Bradley Cooper in A star has been born is that he said "damn" a lot. As a much, much.
Like the rocker Jackson Jackson, all the other prayers from Cooper's bearded mouth were "damn" this "or" damn "." Bobby (Sam Elliott) is his damn big brother. His dead father was his damned drinker friend. When he meets his lover of the muse and protects him for the first time, Ally (Lady Gaga), buys him a drink at a police bar, where one of his songs plays the loudspeaker. "I screwed up this song," he confesses. Ally is fucking talented, and she can really sing, like … fuck! He has a damn problem with drinking, what he does not want to talk about. And Ally was a fucking artist, until she became a pop star. (His judgment, not mine!) It's Jackson, damn Maine, and he does not lie without a damn alibi. The stars have never been born again; They're done!
Jackson Jackson swears too much, or is it just because all the foliages are pronounced in the course of a contagious musical melodrama, which feels like a lot of foliage? I think it's the last thing. Many films present characters that throw the word "fuck", but it stands out more in this case because it is not talking about robberies and murders, but of the European stage of the tour of his wife. I swear by an average amount, and I even had the misfortune to live in the city of Boston, but this is coming. Wolf of Wall Street-level. This is the Tarantino level.
But I'm pro-fucks, pro-Jackson Maine and pro-Vulture, so I decided to count. Approximately, how many times does Cooper-as-Jackson Maine say "fuck" or some variation of them (usually "fucked") in A star has been born?
According to my account: 54.
There is a rhythm in the way that Maine frees the fans, as if the oath came out of his mouth in one sentence, and then in the next, and then, of course, in the next as well. I do not know what ASMR is and I'm too lazy to google it, but I think it means "Always Swear MR", as in "Let Mr. Jackson Maine swear it all he wanted!" a satisfying rounded, a fullness when Bradley Cooper says "damn", as maybe … [redacted — I went to Catholic school!]. It's not sinister, but cunning, like Jackson Maine is telling us something better than the truth: it's the damned The truth, because he says "fuck" a lot. It is hot and reckless.
The only person who surpasses Jackson Jackson is his brother Bobby Maine, who says "fucked up" only about two dozen times, but every time he says "fucked up" you can practically hear his fecund white mustache tickling his lower lip, and it's also a very satisfying sound. Bobby says "damn" less, but his "fucks" have more impact. But also Sam Elliott is 74 years old and Bradley Cooper is 43, and although they are brothers in this film, it is a long time for Sam Elliott to become familiar with this.
Fifty-four "fucks" over the course of two hours and 17 minutes is 27 "fucks" an hour. Thirteen of the "fucks" enter Scene 98 alone, where Jackson confronts Ely about her pop music while she is taking a bath. "You could not be my dad if you had fucked up," he mocks. "He had more talent on his damn finger than you did on your whole damn body, so do not even go for that, right … that's beyond the fucking line." Another thing to consider: Cooper co-wrote the script, so there's about a hundred other people, uttered by Ally, his father, his manager and Bobby's, which can be attributed to him, beyond just Jackson Maine.Once again, just something to consider.
Anyway. Bradley Cooper says "damn" a lot in A star has been born. The number, once again, is 54. I do not envy him for that, because it's just one of the many things that makes Jackson Maine a shit.power. That is all!
