"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Months of Meryl: Postcards from the Edge (1990)

JohnandMattheware watching every single live-action film starring Meryl Streep.

#17 —Suzanne Vale,a recovering drug addict and B-list actress of royal Hollywood pedigree.

MATTHEW:It has always been impossible to escape the metatextual associations of Carrie Fisher'sPostcards from the Edge,which really means it has always been impossible to escape the shared history of two artists: Fisher and her famous mother,Debbie Reynolds,a relationship that is the very bedrock of Fisher's 1987 novel and Mike Nichols' subsequent screen adaptation.To watch the latter now,in a world without Fisher or Reynolds,is an experience of unavoidable and indescribable bittersweetness.It helps,however,that Fisher confronted even the most harrowing episodes of her lifelong addiction with a sly,battle-ready smirk and a tart tongue,which always ensured that she — and she alone — would get the last word.On the screen,Postcards from the Edgeremains a salty,joyous,yet tough-minded immersion within the rocky recovery of its Fisher-like heroine,Suzanne Vale,and a prickly heartwarmer that continually confuses our inclinations towards laughter or tears.

This is largely because of Fisher,whose hysterical one-liners are an art form unto themselves.Consider,for a moment,that such gems as "Do you always talk in bumper stickers?"and "Instant gratification takes too long"and "What am I supposed to do,go to a halfway house for wayward SAG actors?"are all spoken within the first 20 minutes of the movie,and there are plenty more where those came from...

Beauty vs Beast: Look Who's Still Here

Jason fromMNPPwith our weekly "Beauty vs Beast"fun-time - I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to do this one at the start of this year when we were mourning the epic loss of both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (I even re-watched this film at that time) but perhaps the pain was too much.Anyway as Nat told you earlier it's Shirley MacLaine's birthday so the right time has revealed itself,and today we'll tackle Mike Nichols' glorious 1990 comedyPostcards From the Edge,starring MacLaine and some Meryl woman,based on Fisher's thinly veiled book about a drug-addict actress and her let's-say-ebuillent actress-mother.Mother-Actress?Actress-Singer-Mother?Well that's the question,isn't it?

PREVIOUSLYI'm shocked and flabbergasted by you people - hasn't Jennifer Garner suffered enough?Wewished her a happy birthday last weekwith some13 Going on 30love and y'all rejected her star-making performance for Adorable Mark Ruffalo.I...well he is pretty damn adorable.SaidDave S:

"Ruffalo in this movie is top-tier among underwritten love interests;I think him ceding the stage for the female lead is actually a point in his favor.He gets to fill the somewhat vaguely defined dream guy role in a way we're more used to seeing actresses relegated to.See also: Aidan Quinn as the projectionist in "Desperately Seeking Susan"."

Doc Corner: Debbie and Carrie's Bright Lights

"Take your broken heart,make it into art."That wasMerylStreepat last weekend's Golden Globe Awards ending her lifetime achievement speech with a quote by her friend Carrie Fisher.Despite working as a suitable mantra for much of Fisher's autobiographical work,a broken heart lingers overBright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds,not just because the pair passed away in quick succession leaving behind generations of fans whose lives were forever changed by this most unique mother and daughter team.

No,there is also the very real breaking heart of Fisher who saw her mother's health deteriorating and decided she needed to document her mother while she still had the chance.How was she or any of us to know the tragic circumstances that would befall the two of them and surround Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens' documentary.
