Charlize Theron's Gaze

Reflective (I believe) of the quality of the script and Charlize Theron's performance. The Evil Queen wonders about something as trite as her looks yet the effect is palpable. She takes it very seriously. She's almost stricken. That look, those eyes, that doubt. No sense of camp here. Compelling.

'Snow White and the Huntsman' is pure buttery summer popcorn, but this still could be from an indie drama, an awards contender. Theron has become must-see. She always brings it. I'll wager, when reviews come out, most of the 'Huntsman' talk will be about her.

We had our fun at first, but it's become clear there's no reason to compare this to 'Mirror Mirror'. Looking forward. Very nice.
