Drunk In Public –
May 11, 2018 – It’s palpable in a scene where he takes quaaludes and loses all control of his motor functions, sliding across a floor and down a wall as he attempts to flee from an interrogative dinner. Cumberbatch’s full use of his physical body is necessary for the scene and it’s perhaps why his body is so intensely scrutinized by his fanbase. More so than an actor dripping with sexuality, he’s an actor whose physicality feels as if it is summoning you to analyze it, decode it. Sherlock was his overnight success and it makes sense because he engenders mystery merely from his looks.
