Well, I understand she lost her looks getting old but come on, she has always been a kind of a caricature of a good actress. Even in La Reine Margot, she’s just able to give listless looks, to scream or to pout nicely.
And I won’t talk about nowadays, she just ridiculous. And badly face-lifted.
Dangerous Liaisons (Stephen Frears).
Because. Because Glenn Close as the Marquise de Merteuil is foutument classy and delightfully Machiavellian.
Challenger : Alex in A Clockwork Orange. Malcolm MacDowell, amazing.
Love Actually (Richard Curtis).
It’s not so much the kiss itself as the story about… the approach is so moving, done with the right words and the guy keeps a perfect attitude. Of course I was crying. And of course I would have done the same as Keira Knightley’s character.
But… gniiii that’s crazy how I’d like to answer Gone with the wind at any category ! And I’d like to talk about Ennis and Jack’s reunion kiss in Brokeback Moutain : I’m not sure to have ever seen a more passionate one.
Citizen Kane (Orson Welles).
I know, it’s a shame. I know, Citizen Kane is considered as the best movie of all time. But I stopped watching it not so long after the beginning.
Well, I was young so I guess I should try again…
Lord of War (Andrew Niccol).
I have to comfess I never really thought about title sequences before. OK, when they are nicely made it’s pleasant to start a movie that way, but generally I forget them during the movie.
But thinking of today’s category, the first one to come to my mind was the Lord of War’s one : the Life of a Bullet. It was the best way to introduce the movie’s plot, and it’s very well done. And by the way, it’s an excellent film.
(my Gosh, I still can’t believe I like a movie with Nicolas Cage…)
