Junglebooktriptych3-800x400 Beasts of Burden

DiCaprio, having been maimed in all maimable ways, stares directly into the camera, seemingly shattering the fourth wall by sheer force of will. Teeth grit, lips sneered, his eyes scream “is this enough? Huh? Is this finally enough? Daniel Day Lewis didn’t sleep...
