Sure hope this doesn’t suck

The guy playing “Luther” looks awfully dewy and ‘N Syncish. He should be beefier, like Kenneth Branagh. I hope it’s a human portrayal, neither hagiography nor demonization. A fascinating, tragic, courageous, hateful, brilliant, deeply disturbed, intensely pious, tender, sentimental, sensitive, brutal, and (near the end of his life) quasi-deranged man. I’ve never been able to stay angry at him long. He’s too pitiable and wounded a figure for me. He was the great Bill Collector for all of medieval Catholicism’s unpaid bills. God have mercy on him.
