Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Dangerous Liaisons (1988)] One of the least static costume dramas ever made and what costumes! A first-rate piece of work by a director who's daring and agile. It's heaven--alive in a way that movies rarely are. See more »

Trivia:

Her first piece of film criticism for "The New Yorker" was a glowing review of Bonnie and Clyde (1967), written at a time when several critics were panning the film. Her review may have led to the film's eventual box office success and many Academy Award nominations the following year. See more »
