Tilda Swinton rapture


Darcy said...

Good call, Lem! She does have a very interesting face!

edutcher said...

Not beautiful or even pretty, but a strong English face.

Too much skull showing through. Gives me the willies.

ricpic said...

She's also insanely tall. But I have to admit she does a great job in a cameo role as a gossip columnist (Hedda Hopper?) in the Coen Brothers' Hail Caeser.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

She did a great job with the first chapter of Moby Dick.

Sixty Grit said...

She seems to be skilled at looking blank. Maybe she is acting.

Lem said...

Her range is off the charts.

Lem said...

Thanks Darcy.

Rabel said...

Speaking of disappearing into the clouds, remember last year's big discovery of gravitational waves? Emily Litella.

Methadras said...

She has a delicate yet androgynous beauty. There are times from certain angles she looks really hot and there are times when she is a keep-out zone, but the one thing she is, is a diverse actress of what I think is excellent skill.

Sydney said...

Her face is like a canvas.

Lem said...

A couple of times I had no idea it was her until after the movie.

Lem said...

In Michael Clayton she was terrific.

Chip Ahoy said...

Speaking of rapture, her performance as Blondie is memorable.

My fav.

Sixty Grit said...

Does she have a sibling named ";"? You know, the one with the colostomy bag.

Trump fan said...

She's a man baby!!!

Lem, Michael Clayton is the first time I saw Swinton. She is a superb character actress. I prefer character actors to stars.

Not in any order, here are a few I love:

John Cazale[died too young]

JT Walsh[died too young as well]

Billy Bob Thornton

Ned Beatty

Lisa Kudrow[I never have watched one episode of Friends]

Laura and Bruce Dern

Stother Martin

Brad Dourif[Billy Bibbit and the doc in Deadwood]

Harry Dean Stanton

Tilda Swinton

Kathy Bates

Slim Pickens

Wallace Beery

Scatman Crothers

Peter Lorre

Elisah Cook[met him @ the Drake that snobbish?]

Yaphett Koto

John C Reilly

Frederick Forrest

Diane Wiest

These posts are much better than the race baiting, hateful, angry, posts. Is that snobbish?

ndspinelli said...

Allow me to amend my list and add Doris Roberts, who just died @ age 90.

rhhardin said...

I have her logged in "burn after reading" and "michael clayton" DVDs but don't remember her.

I do suffer from all actresses look alike syndrome, except for Sandra Bullock, Ann Hathaway and Julia Roberts, who I can recognize.

Sandra Bullock has a look-alike in some DVD I saw recently but don't remember which. Oh, Kate Beckinsale in The Trials of Cate McCall.

Don't be a h8ter, Nick.

The first time I saw Swinton, that I knew it was her, was The Deep End, a 'serious' movie I recommend. I had no idea she was so prolific. That's her in the idiotic Snowpiercer? lol no wonder that character worked. She's obviously not a movie snob.

deborah said...

rh, it's actually getting older syndrome. All the young singers and actresses look alike, and I can't remember their names until several years go by.

deborah said...

Nick, I think of Swinton as a star. But like the following list, she is also a chameleon, which is the sign of a true actor, not a type. Generally speaking, stars like Bullock, Tom Hanks, and Helen Hunt play themselves.

Kevin Spacey

Meryl Streep

John Cusack

ndspinelli said...

Meryl Streep is the most overrated actress to ever be on screen. And, you may think of Swinton as a star, but I doubt SHE DOES. You, her agent, and her mom think of her as a star. Great character actors sometimes grow into stardom. Phillip Seymour Hoffman is an example. But, they still see themselves PROUDLY as character actors and remain willing to take small roles.
