i like this because ben’s almost but not entirely wearing his sherlock face while accepting direction - like, the mouth is all sherlock, but there’s a softness to the his gaze that’s not sherlock.
he is an very interesting actor, in the plasticity of his features - daniel day lewis has the same quality, where he can act himself a different set of features if necessary. alec guinness. can’t really think of a fourth.
He’s in the zone.
