#i just loved that this movie didn’t delve into his life #i just loved that you knew something had gone wrong in his past #i loved that you could tell there were things that were bad #that he was eating thanksgiving by himself at a chinese restaurant where he was clearly a regular #i loved that his phone kept ringing but he kept ignoring the calls #that you knew someone wanted to contact him but he was ignoring them #i loved that he was a city cop who for SOME REASON moved to a small town #i loved that he had that very clear tick of blinking his eyes that something was wrong #that he had this rage inside of him #but this sense of honor and this sense of justice #BUT THE MOVIE NEVER TOLD YOU ABOUT ANY OF IT #IT DIDN’T FEEL THE NEED TO MAKE THIS FILM ABOUT HIS LIFE #I LOVED IT SO MUCH BECAUSE HE WAS SO MYSTERIOUS AND SO PERFECT AND UNF
"Physical things, like the twitch and stuff like that, that sort of began as an idea, early on. It really just felt right; I can’t exactly explain why at first. And then, as I realized that he had so much going on in his mind, so many pieces of information to hold onto, and, emotionally, he was repressing so much, that sometimes that comes out in strange physical ways and attributes and tics. And I found that to be a way in which it was like an expression of this emotional state; he just couldn’t emote, because it would hurt the case. It could hurt him in trying to figure out the case, it could cause great doubt. So he was just dealing with computing so much that it was almost like an overload. It was like a glitch." - Jake Gyllenhaal
HE WAS GOING TO DIE AND HE USED HIS REMAINING STRENGTH TO FREE HER… THIS IS HOW YOU OTP
YOUR OTP COULD NEVER
I often see things online about how Eugene should have waited to be saved, then cut her hair, or that he shouldn’t have cut as much, etc. but I feel like those people are missing the entire point.
Ok first of all, Eugene had waited for Rapunzel to heal him, who knows what would have happened, because Mother Gothel could have come and taken her away immediately. He instead makes the selfless decision with the little bit of strength that he has, to risk his own life in order to save Rapunzel. But more importantly: Eugene was selfish his entire life - mainly because nobody was ever looking out for him. He grew up poor and in an orphanage, so he had to be selfish in order to survive, which is why he turned to thieving. This moment is the moment where everything changes. It is the one time in his life that he puts someone else first.
Second: The symbolism behind the fact that he cuts her hair should tell you everything. All of Rapunzel’s life the only person who she ever knew to love her, didn’t actually love her, but she loved her hair. Gothel was always shown looking, talking to and kissing Rapunzel’s hair, and not really ever Rapunzel herself. Eugene, on the other hand, fell in love with Rapunzel the PERSON. He saw her as another human being, and he saw her heart. That is why he cut her hair - her hair didn’t matter to him because the magic was INSIDE her. He knew that and thus knew that even as he died, she would live a happy life because of how beautiful she is on the inside.
