Earlier in the year, Michael Haneke was contemplating a pair of film ideas and the one that we thought was temporarily "shelved", has according to Haneke's muse Isabelle Huppert, been thrown back on the burner. A film project that Haneke had mentioned as early as 2006, Ces Deux had financial backing and already had thesps Huppert and Jean Louis Trintignant confirmed, but Haneke's "internet" project would take the lead. Apparently, there has been a switch-up, ThePlaylist reports that the project is only a couple of months away from filming, and Emmanuelle Riva will play Huppert's mother in the film. This will be the third time Huppert works with Haneke. The pair teamed on the difficult to forget bizarre mother-daughter rapport in The Piano Teacher and dystopia near the train tracks pic,Time of the Wolf.

Start with Pt 1 of this 90s Flashback... if you're confused about what's going on. To make a long story short, I'm excerpting items from an old zine I wrote in Spring 2000, during the first year of the website. Yes, I was originally juggling too many things. Why that's not like me At All.
We previously covered my dated lists for Actors, Supporting Actresses and Supporting Actors -- lists I don't agree with in full anymore (though the supporting actresses list I quite like still). So now we move on to Picture and Actress.
Top ten chronological order. What follows is original text from the magazine, with the winner in bold text. I had purposefully excluded 1999 which is why you don't see Kate Winslet for Holy Smoke or Hilary Swank for Boy's Don't Cry though here's what I wrote about Swank in that same zine...
I'm rooting for Swank on Oscar night. »

Gérard Depardieu, a.k.a. the only French actor most Americans know, has reportedly laid into Juliette Binoche, a.k.a. the only French actress most Americans know. (Well, with the exception of this one.) Depardieu talked le smack in an interview with Austrian magazine Profil, saying of the Chocolat actress, “I would really like to know why she has been so esteemed for so many years. She has nothing. Absolutely nothing!”
Whoa, pretty harsh. Say what you will about Juliette Binoche’s acting — for my part, I’ll say she’s very talented even if she’s not my »

Oscar-winning French actor Juliette Binoche could have settled for Hollywood stardom. Instead, she is putting the spotlight on human rights injustices in Iran
Actor, poet, painter, dancer: these are all real-life roles that Juliette Binoche has performed with varying degrees of success or, at least, recognition. But this year it is as a human rights campaigner that the 46-year-old Oscar-winning star of The English Patient has drawn perhaps most headlines.
Just recently hers was one of the celebrity names attached to the international appeal to halt the stoning to death of Mohammadi Ashtiani, the 43-year-old Iranian mother found guilty of adultery. Ashtiani had already been lashed 99 times and held in prison for five years, after confessing under torture to having affairs with two men.
