    The Beauty of the Real: What Hollywood Can Learn from Contemporary French Actresses

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. The Beauty of the Real: What Hollywood Can Learn from Contemporary French Actresses is a book by Mick LaSalle, film critic for the San Francisco Chronicle and Hearst Newspapers, that highlights an explosion of female talent in French cinema. Scores of French actresses are doing the best work of their lives in movies tailored to their star images and unique personalities. To spend time with them, to admire their flashing intelligence and fearless willingness to depict life as it is lived, gives us what we're looking for in movies but so rarely find: insights into womanhood, meditations on the dark and light aspect's of life's journey, revelations and explorations that move viewers to reflect on their own lives. The stories they bring to the screen leave us feeling renewed and excited about movies again. This list below is from Appendix Two of LaSalle's book. It includes films that are available in English subtitled editions and are mentioned in his book or his suggestions that did not make the text.

Midnight showings can elevate a movie to cult status, but not all cult movies are midnight favorites. Here are 50 of the greatest midnight movies that have that certain je ne sais quoi — the ones we’d happily stay up all night to watch. (By Alison Nastasi | January 14, 2015)
