Beauty vs Beast: The Kindness of Strangers

Jason Adams fromMNPPhere,using this week's brand new "Beauty vs Beast"poll to celebrate the 48th birthday of the great Sofia Coppola,which is tomorrow.We are so lucky to have her!Quite honestly I think the world's been under-valuing her directing career,which's given us one great film after another after another.Her last one,2017's remake ofThe Beguiled,is where we're focusing today -- another entirely under-appreciated one if you ask me.While I've long been a fan of Don Siegel's sweaty 1971 version I consider Coppola's an improvement for how it spins itself off into a gothic fable of female empowerment gone to seed.It feels like a sister film to Nicole Kidman's other movie about haunted folks isolated during war-time,The Others-- seriously,go watch them back to back.That'll be an excellent evening at the movies.But until then...

PREVIOUSLY
Switching over to the Elder Coppola,it turns out it was too tough for us to vote for a war-mongering maniacwith last week'sApocalypse Nowpoll,even when he's played by Marlon Brando -- Martin Sheen's "Captain Willard"managed to score 57% of your vote instead.

Summed up byTom G:

"Shouldn't we NOT be voting for crazy people with too much power?"

Miss Farnsworth is the only one who thinks primarily with her head instead of her heart.That's why the only logical thing to do was to cut off his leg,then kill him.Makes sense to me!

Of course Miss Farnsworth.She was a great woman who knew what to do and never gave in to temptation as I think it's one of Nicole Kidman's best performances in a film that in my opinion is better than what Don Siegel did with Clint Eastwood.
