Alanis Morissette

  1. Linda Fiorentino, Dogma, 1999.      Said Rolling Stone critic Peter Travers: Thou shalt not stop laughing//. As New Jersey’s askew auteur Kevin Smith explained many times: not casting his ex-lover, Joy Lauren Adams, as the descendent of Mary and Joseph was a major error. There were days when Linda wouldn’t even talk to him. His first choice had been Gillian Anderson. Next? Shannen Doherty, Janeane Garofalo (who became Liz) and singer Morissette – into her world tour. She managed to open a window in order to play… God!
  2. Angelina Jolie, Girl, Interrupted, 1999, One Flew into the Cuckoo’s nest… stems from Susanna Kaysen’s memoir. She committed herself to a psychiatric institution and was kept there for two years, although she was quite sane. Chicago critic Roger Ebert said Winona Ryder) (also exec producer) and the support Oscar-winning Angelina Jolie – as Susanna and the sociopath Lisa – were the reasons to see the film, although “their work here deserves a movie with more reason for existing.” Most other patients were teenage girls, played by rising young Hollywood actresses in their 20s – Angela Bettie and Jillian Armenante even played 22 at age 31. Why? Because, said Rose McGowan, “It’s the only decent thing out there that doesn’t involve taking your clothes off.”
