"Interesting how some read the moment as an unequivocal act of heroism from Bobby.I felt differently: his violent aggression and instinctual presumption of the man's guilt complicated my identification,rather than strengthened it."-Jonathan

"Dafoe is completely wonderful in this.There's a throwaway scene where he chases away some birds that made me love his character so much."-Rebecca

10 Things I Learned About Kathleen Turner This Week

Kathleen Turner as Molly Ivins

Those of you in the Los Angeles area have two enticing theater options coming up.The first -- an absolute must see -- is the Broadway production of Stephen Sondheim'sFollies.It's coming to LA soon from Broadway intact but for Bernadette Peters who will be replaced by another major but less famous talent,Victoria Clark (The Light in the Piazza).The other theater option is currently playing.I can't vouch for since I haven't seen it,but it's the one and only Kathleen Turner playing Molly Ivins in the one woman showRed Hot Patriot.

I have however seen Kathleen Turner live on stage twice (Who's Afraid of Virginia WoolfandHigh) and she doesn't lose even one ounce of her charisma or gift on the stage the way many screen stars do when they attempt the transfer.Earlier this week she had a live chat at theLA Times Culture Monsterand,though I've never participated in one of those before it was my darling Kathleen (she along with Pfeiffer and Streep is how I became such an actress-obsessive in my formative years) so I had to!

I told her I missed her onscreen and her response went like so.

I have a film coming out calledA Perfect Familysometime this Spring.I still enjoy camera acting,but it's not as exhilarating to me as being on stage."

Ten other things I learned during her chat with fans after the jump...

10 Notable Bits From Kathleen Turner's Live Chat

10.Her favorite actors are Dame Maggie Smith and Dame Judi Dench.How strange is that?MOMENTS before this live chat we had just made a major plea for them to present at the Oscars together亚博主页. This is empirical evidence that Kathleen was reading the Film Experience as she answered questions!亚博主页;) But in all serious lord knows if she ever googles herself,she's seen the site.


09.Her favorite of her own films isSerial Mombecause she has so many wonderful memories from the set ("most laughs") and she is still close with John Waters.This movie prompted the funnest questions from her gathered fans.Had she ever made a prank phone call "For heaven's sake,no!Nor will I".One fan said the house the real Serial Mom lived in in Baltimore was for sale.Should he buy it and give tours?"Good luck!"was her perfect succinct response.

8-1 after the jump

John Wood (RIP) and Link Roundup

Before the link roundups I wanted to say a fond farewell to British actor John Wood who died at 81 this weekend in his sleep.I'll always remember him as the Bishop of Aquila who was driven to madness and lust by the beauty of the young Michelle Pfeiffer inLadyhawke(1985).It happens.

Though the Tony winner spent much of his time on stage he also had several screen roles including parts in hits likeWar Games(1983),critical darlings likeOrlando(1993) andThe Purple Rose of Cairo(1995) and Oscar favorites likeThe Madness of King George(1994) andChocolat(2000).His final feature film was also the final Merchant/Ivory filmThe White Countess(2005).RIP John Wood.
