Months of Meryl: Sophie's Choice

"This is the best Streep performance ever captured on film. "That's all."" - Dorian

"I support this movie, partially because I loved the Styron novel and, along with Schindler's List, it's one of the best American movies to teach people about the holocaust. Streep is sublime in it, and it's such a great role - she gets to play Sophie before the war, during the war, after the war, etc. " - Tom

The Monty Clift article was really gorgeous, and starring my all-time favorites (Monty, Jimmy, and Liz). Thanks for sharing!

Loved reading about Montgomery Clift, I always do, even if those stories always make me incredibly sad. That said, they almost lost me at the LeBouf comparisons. Film history is full of actors being critical with their work or with their directors (hey they mention Hepburn, at least) and then there're talented actors. Just the thought of young people reading that article and putting both of them at the same level... is scary.

Those Scandals of Classic Hollywood pieces at The Hairpin are always so good. I've actually spent the past 90 minutes or so catching up on a number that I've missed.

I love Roger Ebert. Sent him a tweet saying just that. Grateful the documentarian of (Hoop Dreams) is authoring Roger's immortalization in feature form. Ebert wrote (Beyond the Valley of the Dolls), cool points are a given, he's still here, due to his wife's insistence on no more life-threatening surgeries.

What surprises me the most about Roger Ebert is that his depth of writing and output greatly increased (ital)after(ital) his bout with thyroid cancer. His online journal is always a fantastic read and I hope this documentary does his life justice.

That article on Clift was indeed a gem.
