Yes, Oscar Isaac was super cute in that latest Star Wars movie. But something about The Promise just made me keel over in fits of lust and twitterpation! I’m going to ignore the fact that he’s only 5’9″ (I’m a tall girl) and just mentally put him uphill from me as I hope he does some more historical costume movies so I can gaze upon his absolute beauty…
The Nativity Story (2006)
I normally omit biblical stories because 1. they are boringly costumed, and 2. they kind of freak me out, but at this point I’d watch Isaac lick wallpaper (mmmm, licking…)
I do remember thinking he was really cute in Agora with Rachel Weisz, which is SUCH a great movie:
Robin Hood (2010)
Apparently I need to rewatch this pretty-forgettable “gritty” retelling of the Robin Hood story with Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, not just because Isaac plays evil King John…
BUT BECAUSE THIS HAPPENS:
Okay, so technically Isaac is in the contemporary half of this story about a modern-day woman who becomes obsessed with 1930s English King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson. But look, he’s tender and musical! (Side note, we really need to review this, because the 1930s costumes are S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G.)
For Greater Glory: The True Story of Cristiada (2012)
Apparently a based-on-a-true-story about civil war in late 1910s Mexico. Isaac plays a general, Victoriano Ramírez.
In Secret (2013)
Trystan panned this movie as only being interesting for the in-costume sex, but now that I have this major crush on Isaac, YES PLEASE I WILL JUST KEEP REWATCHING THE SEX SCENES. Report forthcoming.
The Promise (2016)
He’s an Armenian medical student just trying to figure out his love life when the Armenian Genocide starts up.
At Eternity’s Gate (2018)
He plays artist Paul Gaugin in a story focused on Vincent Van Gogh’s time in Arles:
Operation Finale (2018)
“15 years after World War II, a team of secret agents are brought together to track down Adolf Eichmann, the infamous Nazi architect of the Holocaust.” Set in 1960, Isaac plays Peter Malkin, the Israeli secret service agent.
Do you share in my newfound lust, or am I crazy?
