Her performance in Silence of the Lambs is one of the very best female performances I've seen. The Accused is right up there with it, and her work in Taxi Driver is really strong too but it's not on the same level.
August 7th, 2019--- A day in Movie Awards Infamy when the Best Actor/Actress Across Film/Stage/TV thread gained TWO THOUSAND views in 2 HOURS....on an empty board with almost no viewers. Only The Best Thread Ever can pull off these miracles!
I hope you will like it! It has to be one of the most divisive performances of all time, but to me, it's only divisive because of how honest it is. She fully commits to the character and risks being made fun of in the process. There is pure poetry in her strange speech and rigid body movements, and in her quiet moments, she's simply stunning.
1. The Silence of the Lambs 2. The Accused 3. Taxi Driver 4. Nell
The first is all-time good, the second is fine but nothing noteworthy, she does nothing for me in the third (though to be fair, nothing about that movie does), and the fourth is hilariously misguided and still not even the worst performance nominated in that category that year.
