It was a confusing time while I was shooting pictures to go with this interview. At one point, I could not say which picture was still from the biography of Freddie Mercury Bohemian Rhapsody, where Rami Malek plays a titular role, and which picture was a singer himself.
Rami Malek turned to Freddie Mercury – he resembles an equally, game-like look, bad eyes and performance.
When is the first appearance of a movie Bohemian Rhapsody it went out, it was difficult to say that it was the same actor who played a hacker who has a social anxiety disorder and depression in a series of American thrillers Mr. Robot, or co-stars in the mini-series HBO Warl Var II in the Emmi Award Pacific Ocean.
The film depicts the life of Mercury, from its early days with the queen of the seventies of the last century, through its rise in world fame with hymns such as "We will Rock You, "on incredible performances at the Live Aid concert in July 1985 at the London Vemble Stadium. The film also documents personal battles of Merkur, including his struggle with his sexuality and the use of drugs and alcohol.
There is no doubt that playing Freddie Mercuri is the role of life for any actor.
However, as the film was released in the United Kingdom and the United States on October 24 – which was released in India on November 16th – the reviews began to be heard on how Bohemian Rhapsody failed to capture the details of Merkur's life, as he attempted to win her sexuality and death. However, this did not deter the collection of the film's bok. Telegraph it reports Bohemian Rhapsody is on its way to becoming "the biggest musical biopic of all time" with the opening of $ 50 million in the United States and opening £ 6.9 million in the UK. Obviously even bad criticism worked for the benefit of the film. It's enough to say that Rami Malek is the last laugh.
In an exclusive email interview Firstpost, Malek opens for playing a character like Merkur, his favorite poem Kueen, and it's hard to pack into a 2-hour film in one's whole life. Performs:
From the Night at the Museum movies, to 24, to the Pacific Ocean, to the G. Robot and now Bohemian Rhapsody. How does it feel?
At first it was a clear shock. As an actor, I do not think there is any law on the depression of excitement when these things happen in your career, especially when you are asked to play Freddie Mercury. It's a moment that stops you in your tracks and is immediately euphoric and exciting. Then there is the hit size and weight that you have to take with this legendary man who lives in the hearts of so many people and is honored as one of the most talented artists of any generation.
What is the moment of the gun to the head, what are you doing? And I like to think, if it's a fight or flight situation, I'll fight. The most terrible efforts I have chosen to take in life were the most successful and most important. And this proved to be the defense of this equation.
How is the biopic Freddie Mercuri – what many consider the role of life – falls into your lap?
I did not believe in the enthusiasm of the producer around the auditorium for the role of actors Bohemian Rhapsody. Previously, I thought someone was joking about me when I was told that I became a filmmaker in the Queen of Long Gesture. But after a conversation with producer Graham King and the official signature, I was on board.
What is the exact thought that went through your head when you found out that you were going to play Freddie? We know you're queen …
So, you can imagine the enormous weight of it! Now there is an ambitious part of me who is wildly excited and begins to think about how to begin to inhabit this unique and magnificent creature. I do not think there is anyone who does not know at least one song Kueen.
One thing is to imagine Freddie Mercury, but to enter the character's character is the whole other. What was the process?
I put everything in preparation for this and I try to make that person righteous, that acceptance was inspirational and mobile. It gives me hatred just thinking about it because that's exactly what it is, it transforms itself. It's always Freddie, but there are different versions, which I think is nice. It's not like he hides anything, it's not Jekyll and Hide, they're all he is. That's who he wants to be at a given moment and given a situation that is so appealing.
I saw an interview where he said: "On the scene, I can be a man, a man that everyone wants to be." And I think you see it in the '80s: this artist throwing a fist in the air and holding a bunch of raising one hand. While in his younger days, he was very difficult and irregular when he tried to find himself and that he had more hack. So I began to recognize it and work on the progression of the character in this way. What was incredibly useful was when I started to find a team of people who would help me to meet in essence.
Nothing about him was choreographed. The word "choreography" simply does not belong to the close name Freddie Mercuri. I wanted to find someone who could basically understand the way he moved and why he moved in the way he worked. So I found the coach of the movement. Eddie Redmaine in The theory of Everything it was a great inspiration for me and I studied how he played Stephen Havking and I told myself "it's not choreographed and I believe that Eddie worked with the coach for the movement.
I met a few people, and then I worked with Polly Bennett, a trainer for moving. The way Polly worked was fantastic. She understood how to approach this and we began to talk about Freddie's legacy and his youth, and how his affinity would be articulated.
Bohemian Rhapsodi received a PG-13 certificate in the United States, 12A in the UK. Is it safe to assume that the film will not engage in the more controversial aspects of Fred's life?
It's hard to describe one's life in just two hours. What is the nature of the celebration of life? Definitely not avoiding his death in any way, or what caused his death, which is the AIDS virus. But I think that if you do not celebrate your life, its struggles and how complicated it was and how transformational it was – and instead, in grief over what it suffered and its ultimate death – this could be a poor service of a deep, lively, brilliant nature such an indelible human being.
What do you have to say to those who claim that the film does not go into Freddie's sexuality, and that he throws out all the lively details of life?
The most unlikely thing about his sexuality and the aspect of his life is that he never talked about it. He goes beyond all these strict labels and boxes that we try to impose on people. He has never been limited in that way. He just was. And I think it will make it even more iconic, if that's possible. That's why he's so accessible to everyone.
What I know about Freddie is that he was not intent on what to do on the stage at night before he continues. He did not think about what his moves would be during the evening of the evening when he was on the stage – things were happening depending on the feeling and it was always inspired.
What are your favorite songs Kueen? And has that changed since you worked on the movie?
They're worthless. They make Queen music is a global phenomenon that transcends generic and cultural borders .. You know it's too hard to choose your favorite, but I really love Brian's Hammer will fall (with Kueen's album Works). It's a great song. But for me it would be like choosing a favorite child (laughter). Everyone will take a long, long time.
Especially these two songs – "We are champions & # 39; and & # 39;We'll rub you & # 39; – they are really songs for audience participation and there is no band that did it the same way. They perform the song as "We'll rub you & # 39; or & # 39;We are champions & # 39; and everyone there, collectively sing and move at those massive arenas and stadiums at the same time. These songs unite people.
Can you share the story of Freddie Mercuri / Kueen that has been held up for you, is not it public knowledge? Something you learned about when you were filming or exploring a movie?
No doubt it is love; search and desperate need to find love and how to escape it. Here is the man who constantly searched for love during his life.
I tried to build the base, so I looked at my childhood. Here is a boy who was born in Zanzibar and went to very young at school for Saint Peter in Bombay. He returns home to Zanzibar and there is a revolution going on, and his family is forced to seek refuge in England. So he is named Farrokh Bulsar. It refers to my childhood as a "revolution of education," so that I just started to adapt it somehow to my life in some way, since it is the first-generation American.
He was a man on the scene opposite this young man who tried to use any of his gods who gave him the talent and excellence he had to make home for himself in this new country. And then, given the opportunity, we become the one he was inevitably.
Is Bohemian Rhapsody a film about Freddie Mercury or a queen?
Bohemian Rhapsody is in connection with Freddie Mercury, very strange, very flirtatious. Something is always happening behind these eyes, and around it is something incredibly magnetic. He enjoys fun and sex and intelligence.
