Leo en Esa La He Visto que la famosa revista de cine Premiere Magazine ha publicado una lista de los 100 Mejores Personajes de la Historia del Cine.

Dicha lista sitúa a Gollum en el puesto décimo, por delante de grandes personajes (e interpretaciones) como Charles Foster Kane (Ciudadano Kane), Hannibal Lecter (El Silencio de los Corderos) o Rick Blaine (Casablanca). Es una fuerte apuesta por un personaje joven en el Cine. Lo justifican de esta forma:

We loved him on the page: The slithering, tragicomical Gollum is one of the great creations of fantasy novelist J.R.R. Tolkien. But to launch this erstwhile hobbit, who has been corrupted by the evil ring, out of our imaginations and onto the big screen required a leap forward in film technology. And behold: the first truly realistic computer-generated creature with a character arc. Much credit goes to Serkis, whose reptilian body movements and hilariously pathetic voice infused the miserable miscreant with life?but props also to Jackson and his computer whizzes, who made us eager to watch Gollum?s every move and gasp at his deathly dance, which, finally, decides the fate of Middle-earth.

Defining Moment: When we first see Gollum in all his twisted, tortured glory, in 2002?s The Two Towers, he is wrestling with himself over whether to betray the hobbits. It?s a bipolar disorder of epic (and Oscar-worthy) proportions.
