Isabelle Huppert

One of my favourite actresses, not least because goddamn it she is gorgeous, is currently the centre of attention in NYC.

I have long been adn admirer of her work and her beauty: she is wonderful in Heaven's Gate (on which I have written previously) and Amateur is a film I never tire of re-watching. How can you resist a tale of a nymphomaniac ex-nun who has never had sex? ["I'm choosy"]

Besides... Martin Donovan is VERY watchable.

Funnily enough I was thinking about "Amateur" only yesterday, trying to remember its name. Must watch it again.

I loved MD's wonderfully deadpan throwaway line when the little boy borrows his porn mag and asks whether women all have hair between their legs. Without looking up from what he's doing Martin replies "There's one on page 21 who doesn't". And of course the running gag "But it's not a disk...and it isn't floppy!"
