After all my years of movie watching, I finally got a payoff that heretofore will justify my past (or future) lack of discrimination. No longer do I need bemoan how much time I waste/have wasted watching films.
My actress daughter has asked me to help her "catch up" on actress performances of note by recommending films I think are worth her time. Aside from being pleased she values the opinion of her old fart/non acting father, this project means I can put to good use some of the notes I've made over the years about favorite movies. And the project also allows me to guiltlessly revel in the past; my daughter has already seen many of the great contemporary film performances by actresses.
The first two films I recommended to her were Michael Tolkin's singular vision "The Rapture" (1991) starring Mimi Rogers and Woody Allen's little seen "Another Woman" (1988) starring Gena Rowlands. If you've not seen them, you missed two towering performances. But the reason I'm blogging about this project is because maybe you've seen an actress performance this film geek missed. I'll need lots of titles; the project has no expiration date. Yippee!!
