Beauty vs Beast: Thoroughly Modern Mistress

Happy Monday,everybody -- Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"poll here for you to ponder.I've been trying to use older films for this series lately since it's more likely you'll participate if you've,you know,seen the movie at hand,but this week it just couldn't be helped;we have to go current.Not only is it director Noah Baumbach's birthday later this week (he's turning 46 on Thursday) but just yesterdayNathaniel admitted(MUCH TO MY HORROR) that he didn't much like Baumbach's new filmMistress America.What whatwhat?I...disagree.(Here's the reviewI wrote.) While I can't sayMAkicked my belovedFrances Hato the curb or anything quite that psychotic (it would take a miracle or a nuke to come close) I reveled inMistress' heady mix of madcap silliness and sadness - nothing's made me feel quite so simultaneously goofy and gallant in some time.What a script;what a sharp-edged choreography of words and full-screen wiliness.Anyway hopefully you have seen it by now,and can judge this week's contest for yourselves...

PREVIOUSLYYesterday the 1954 Supporting Actress Smackdown put that year to bed for this month at TFE,but wait,one last thing --who successfully wonSabrina,says y'all?It was a shockingly close battle between the brothers,but in the end William Holden's,well,William-Holden-ness,beat out Bogie.SaidLeslie19:

"All William Holden,all the time.Who else can sit down on champagne glasses with such aplomb?"

Team Brooke;She's a dreamer,even if her ideas are beyond her grasp.

I voted for Tracy because we've all wanted someone to like us.
