Oppenheimer - Played by Cillian Murphy

Male to Female Transformations In Movies

Cillian Murphy -"Oppenheimer"

Reality check: The movie Oppenheimer did not have any MtoF transformations.  However there was a transformation that Cillian Murphy orchestrated into likely the top leading man of 2023.  There were few scenes that he did not appear or own, for over 3 hours 7 minutes. Truly one of the top dramas of the year, if not longer. A worthy draw to get us back into theaters and I highly recommend seeing it on the big screen. 

Oppenheimer is not Cillian Murphy first screen appearance. Other films include, 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' (2003), 'Sunshine' (2007), 'Batman Begins' (2005), 'Breakfast on Pluto' (2005) and others. (The 12 Best Cillian Murphy Movies).

Without question my favorite is "Peacock" (2010). Mentioned in "Collider" as one of the top 25 Transformations.  See my 2018 Blog synopsis, "Peacock - The Movie":


Have you ever wanted to put an end to your other identity? What part would you be ending even if you could separate them?  The movie Peacock (2010) staring Cillian Murphy (Breakfast on Pluto), Susan Sarandon, Bill Pullman and many other Oscar winners, tells a story of a man suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder or multiple personality disorder, as it was previously know (MPD). In my opinion, to equate this to just MPD is a stretch. I see a man who is transgender trying to understand why there is also a female component of his personality that is demanding to exist. He relegates her into a "denial world", as many of us have also done
