    I’m yet to watch a few of her most lauded performances, but right now I’d say her best is Maps to The Stars, closely followed by Safe and Boogie Nights.

    What performances are your favorites?

    1. Far From Heaven – Perfection!
    2. Boogie Nights – Heartbreaking!
    3. The Kids Are Alright – She had a tricky role and I’ve always felt she was the standout in that film. Bening and Ruffalo received the most nominations but she walked an interesting line of being at times unlikeable, vulnerable and incredibly complex.

    Moore has such a wide range of roles that I admire, from studio comedies to indies and historical dramas. I actually don’t think I would even include her Academy Award winning performance in my top ten of her roles. She’s one of my favorites and I generally commend her for being brave and taking chances.

    I think Sarah Palin was her best performance.

    She really got inside that role and showed what made the woman tick. She took the character from obscure politician who thinks God has called her to serve to beleaguered public figure being called dumb in front of the world (you even felt sorry for Palin) and then ended it with Palin getting completely full of herself with ego and making demands no Veep candidate ever did.

    The character arc she built was really something (with the help of a good script of course.)

    1. Far From Heaven
    2. Safe
    3. Game Change
    4. Still Alice
    5. Boogie Nights
    6. The Big Lebowski (Lover her Euro take on Yoko Ono!)

    * I need to watch Map to the Stars and Vanya on 42nd Street. I bet it’ll be up in the top 5 or even 3.

    Some of her worst:

    1. Magnolia (almost a parody of her crying scenes and excesses of Paul Thomas Anderson)
    2. The Hours (Best performance of the three but blah).
    3. The Vertical Hour (play on Broadway) – almost made me rethink how much I loved her as an actress. She was not good in this at all and makes me wonder if she’s a bad stage actress.

    I’ve actually posted this thread without seeing Far From Heaven and after all the praise I gave it a try. I thought she was just…fine? Nicole deserved her Oscar. She is good but she doesn’t reach the same heights she does in the three performances I named.

    1. Maps to The Stars
    2. Safe
    3. Boogie Nights
    4. Vanya on 42nd Street
    5. Still Alice

    To me, her performance in Far from Heaven was a brilliant portrayal of nuance, restraint, desire, denial, inner-turmoil, and pain. It wasn’t a flashy performance, but that made it perfect IMO. She was the most convincing “dated” performance I’ve seen. I truly believed her as a 1950s housewife, which I don’t often believe as so many actresses can’t help but let their contemporary demeanors show. I also love the lack of “crazy” Oscar scene. I thought the only actresses who should have taken it from her if anyone had to was Diane Lane in Unfaithful, Maggie Gyllenhaal in Secretary, and Isabelle Huppert in The Piano Teacher (movie came out in 2001 but I think didn’t get an American release until 2002). I’m still confused as to how Nicole Kidman won an Oscar for The Hours other than goodwill from the previous year and people feeling sorry for her with the whole Tom Cruise thing. I thought it was a pedestrian performance amidst histrionic ones from Streep and Moore.
