Robin Williams died today. Seriously concern yourself with his filmography right now.

Liz Taylor is so freaking perfect in this.

Literally just finished watching this in prep for tomorrow. It had been years since the last time and I loved every demented, freakazoid frame of it. Anxious to see what everyone picks for best shots and what Anne Marie's take on it is on Wednesday.

Is it wrong that when I read Liz, I immediately thought Lemon? Until I saw the gif of course. God I miss my 30 Rock. Yes, mine! You're all allowed access, but I believe that show was somehow created to be loved and adored mainly by me.

From The Fisher King:

"It begins with the king as a boy, having to spend the night alone in the forest to prove his courage so he can become king. Now while he is spending the night alone he's visited by a sacred vision. Out of the fire appears the Holy Grail, symbol of God's divine grace. And a voice said to the boy, "You shall be keeper of the grail so that it may heal the hearts of men." But the boy was blinded by greater visions of a life filled with power and glory andbeauty. And in this state of radical amazement he felt for a brief moment not like a boy, but invincible, like God, so he reached into the fire to take the grail, and the grail vanished, leaving him with his hand in the fire to be terribly wounded. Now as this boy grew older, his wound grew deeper. Until one day, life for him lost its reason. He had nofaith in any man, not even himself. He couldn't love or feel loved. He was sick with experience. He began to die. One day a fool wandered into the castle and found the king alone. And being a fool, he was simple minded, he didn't see a king. He only saw a man alone and in pain. And he asked the king, "What ails you friend?" The king replied, "I'm thirsty. I need some water to cool my throat". So the fool took a cup from beside his bed, filled it with water and handed it to the king. As the king began to drink, he realized his wound was healed. He looked in his hands and there was the holy grail, that which he sought all of his life. And he turned to the fool and said with amazement, "How can you find that which my brightest and bravest could not?" And the fool replied, "I don't know. I only knew that you were thirsty

Mike - agreed. I've always liked the movie but on this watch she was my everything.

Agree on the calibre of the performance but, God, this is one *weird* movie. As a Spaniard I'd like to say we don't always give tourists the kind of treatment depicted in it :P

I think this and Woolf are her two finest hours. In both, she gets to end a fairly insane film with a doozy of a monologue. And she nails it both times.
