    Crying to see Hugh Jackman’s over the top performance winning the previous poll.

    I voted on Beatrice Straight here. She had only a few minutes on screen, but it was pure gold!

    I visited twice. Gyllenhaal & Leo were great. Jackman was fine. Yelled a lot. 🙂

    I’m going to put it out there though, the screenplay is a bit….obnoxious.

    The screenplay in LA Confidential is pretty dark as well. Network’s screenplay just could be the best one ever. Better than Citizen Kane even. Both of them are even truer today as they were then.

    Faye Dunaway was simply electric.  You see the madness inside of her too, which is not as overt as Peter Finch of course, but her Diana is just as obsessed and perhaps even more passionate than his character.  No one plays crazed like Faye.

    Peter Finch….the obvious best performance of the bunch.

    I love Dunaway, but still think Spacek should have won the Oscar.

    Finchy. His “woe is us” speech (not the “mad as hell” speech, which is also great) is one of my favorite movie moments of all time.
