    Which careers do you think embody “neurotic brilliance” (this term can mean whatever you want it to mean, as long as it stays within the realm of neurosis, brilliance and actresses)?

    My picks: Jessica Lange, Geraldine Page, Kim Stanley, and Sandy Dennis.

    I think each of these women has given iconic performances of neurotic brilliance.  In fact, I think, performance or not, they each embody neurotic brilliance.

    Now, you pick!

    Judy Davis, Vanessa Redgrave, Annette Bening should be added to this list.

    This thread screams Jessica Lange lovefest. Are we punished with gifs if we snub her? 😉

    There is no such thing as female acting or male acting – there’s just acting. Isn’t a thread devoted to females who play neurotics somewhat misogynistic (as though neuroses were limited to one gender)?

    LOVE Davis and Bening. 

    This thread screams Jessica Lange lovefest.

    It’s not my fault you think of Jessica Lange when you think of “neurotic brilliance”.

    Not if everyone knows that the creator of said thread is a neurotic male.

    We’re punished with gif whatever happens.

    Repeat –

    I don’t mind the worship, Langeloverperson, but I remember Tom O’Neil mentioning in the past that a lot of gifs slow down people’s computers.

    Julianne Moore and Charlize Theron own this. Moore has never given a bad performance (despite what reviewers of “Hannibal” want you to believe) and Theron is always reliable.

     [/quote]Is Redgrave too subtle for consideration as a sister in neurotic brilliance?

    Nice try, but the thread isn’t really about “neurotic brilliance”.

    see much of Redgrave’s best ever acting ever in TV  history performances – they have tended to be neurotic

    but some of her films – Little Odessa, Agatha, Mother’s Boys, Ballad of a Sad Cafe – are out there

    If more peoplen had seen most of Redgrave’s filmed acting work in its depth and with all the obscure movies, very few would consider anyone else the greatest actress of our time

    I have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to Vanessa’s filmography.

    If you can locate them, I’d recommend Isadora, Wetherby, Prick Up Your Ears, Orpheus Descending, Playing for Time, Second Serve, If These Walls Can Talk 2, Howard’s End, Atonement for starters

    many of these were made for TV or cable

    her most recent film, in which she is brilliant, Unfinished Song, is making its way around the country
