Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Top 5 Films Without Repeating a Language or Country

by Sebastian Nebel

Name your Top 5 films without repeating a language or country of origin.

That was the challengeI posed on Twitterlast month.It's tricky enough to limit your favorites to a specific number,and I was interested in seeing what kind of responses this added degree of difficulty would garner.

Turns out Twitter loves making lists!I got a ton of replies – way too many to collect all of them here,unfortunately.But I've rounded up a handful of them after the jump including lists by亚博主页contributors,film critics and film makers...

Tribeca: "5 to 7,"Or Why Frustrated Writers Should Back Away From Final Draft

Tribeca coverage continues withDianaon 5 to 7 with Anton Yelchin & Glenn Close

Based on the imaginings of an out-of-touch,middle-aged writer-director,5 to 7is about a 24 year-old "writer"(Anton Yelchin) who becomes involved with the 33 year-old wife of a French diplomat (Berenice Marlohe).Brian lives in Manhattan,presumedly on his parents' dime (Glenn Close and Frank Langella,both painfully misused),and attempts to write,his creative juices facilitated by posting a multitude of rejection letters on his wall and playing lonely man wiffleball in his apartment.Arielle also lives in Manhattan  and is oh so very "French"-- husband,two kids,posh neighborhood,and ability to balance high heels with a well-fitting dress.

Spotting Arielle in front of the St.Regis,Brian pursues her through quips that sound more like early drafts of "wit"rather than the finished product (think Woody Allen without the neurotic charm).She tosses words back at him that are meant to signify mutual attraction.When they do end up in a hotel room together (after she hands him the key),there is zip chemistry between the pair,cringingly highlighted all-the-more when Arielle tells Brian that he is a natural lover and asks whether his other lovers had told him that.That's the crux of the problem with this film - we are told things consistently through voiceover and character iteration (Brian loves Arielle,Arielle loves Brian,Brian's mother can see that they love each other),but we're rarelyshownanything substantial enough to back up these assertions.[More...]
