      Looking for Cameos - The Best Self-Assessment for HC OCD Matters Kevin Costner

      2007-06-28 22:58

      Cameo, the fun is that you have to seriously wait for this person to appear, because you don't know when he will appear, wait for you to take a sip or wink, or go to the toilet, he This is a physical and mental game that requires passion and patience. Let’s play it if you have enough. Of course, making good use of the pause button is the nirvana to clear the game. The tragedy is that you can't walk away or turn off the TV and computer immediately after he...

      Francis - a boiling, loving soul

      Soft, sweet voice, hard, strong character, in her eyes, these mundane, rude, and even vulgar people who use tricks happen to cause her to be insulted and hurt. And they called her "a blond maniac", noble but crazy, the beautiful embodiment of their fascination, and the object they were ready to cast aside and destroy. "I refuse to be who you want me to be - dull, ordinary, normal"

      The lover, the patron who had tried to save her, took her from the nursing home, from the...

      The film is as strong as a fist and slammed into the chest one by one, which is sad. A tragedy in a hypocritical and sick society, a tragedy of an actress who is unwilling to follow the crowd and fight alone, a family tragedy caused by a mother who forcibly grafted her vanity dream onto her daughter. I can't imagine how desperate the real Francis was when he was tormented in the asylum. Where is democracy when hypocrisy and vanity overwhelm a soul that longs for freedom?...

      This is really the life of Vanity Fair, and also the lament of the social role of female stars at that...

      "Aunt Lan" Jessica Lange is really a representative of taking her life in acting. She screamed hysterically in several scenes and gave me a headache. Recording a destruction of human nature or a mental breakdown, the psychological drama is like a shadow of a nightmare, except for the character part, Frances's various encounters in a patriarchal society and a native family reveal women's powerlessness with a tough attitude and a rebellious spirit. Whether it is flashy Hollywood Broadway or the...

      After three days on and off, I finally finished watching this film about Frances Farmer. Overall, the translated name is very appealing. I just want to say that Jessica Lange does look like Frances Farmer. There are many scenes in it. I don't know what the law is. Lange also played Mur's own...

      It's weird that Jessica Lange didn't win an Oscar. Think of Lindsey and Britney, the fate of female stars, and the invention of lobotomy should be removed. #Parents are...

    Movie plot

    As a potential actress, the outspoken Frances has a stubborn personality. Because she is unwilling to act as a machine to make money for the Hollywood boss, she is not willing to be controlled by the boss, so she is put into the cold palace, even a small role. Can't even act. After a series of misfortunes, life's hardships changed her character and she became addicted to drugs and alcohol. Later, she had a fierce conflict with her...

    Background creation

    Based on the tragic life of Frances Elena Farmer, this biopic tells a nightmarish tragedy that brings the protagonist's ordeal to life with plenty of space. Frances, played by Jessica Lange, makes up for the lack of layers and rhythm in the film's structure and style with a resolute and emotional performance. Jessica Lange dissolves herself and fully enters the role, portraying Frances's visceral dissatisfaction and indignation...
