Courtney Love in The People vs. Larry Flynt is still one of the best female acting performances ever, imo. It’s not really how people have argued that “but she wasn’t really acting!” She was. She was just drawing on her own experiences. And it’s fascinating to watch.
One of the few performances I’ve seen that is truly hypnotizing.
“You’ve been hanging around here, trying to make yourself invisible behind this fragile little fuck-up routine of yours, but you can’t. You’re anything but invisible. You’re big. And you’re kind of a great mess, like a candle burning on both ends, but it’s beautiful.”
