An Image. Holy Smokes.




As much as I thought Jane Campion's Holy Smoke was an ambitiously overwrought mess, it did feature an impeccable performance by Kate Winslet and proved once again that when she had curves- notice the past tense- she was smoking hot. An indelibly talented actress that doesn't mind going naked very once in a while. What more do you want?

Hey Jordan...I actually just screened Holy Smoke again after some considerable time. I'm a big fan of Campion, especially The Piano, and while I thought as you did that Winslet lead this film (with Keitel a very close second) I was overall a bit displeased with the overall story. It had a great premise but the setup was clunky at times and the pacing was off, especially way into the second act toward the climax. I liked the peculiar family though and some of the scenes with them were quite fun and unique.

Just making the rounds from the Lamb database and thought I'd say hello and invite you to drop over to my blog and say hello.
cheers->
