Quote from: dead-ced-dead on November 29, 2021, 02:30:31 PMI bet you'd all appreciate the movie Vivarium. It's about a young couple who move into a modern home in an estate full of identical houses and find that they can't escape. One day a baby arrives on their doorstep, and it's the kind of identikit baby you imagine all parents in the late twenties/early thirties are saddled with.

Quote from: lipsink on November 29, 2021, 01:34:45 PMWhat about Christina Ricci? She had a great run as a child star: The Addams Family, Mermaids, Addams Family Values, Casper. Then went into indie movies like The Ice Storm, The Opposite of Sex, Buffalo 66. Then Sleepy Hollow, Monster and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Seemed like her career was really building momentum and then just...nothing. I'd imagine she's probably been accused of being "difficult" too.

Quote from: Noodle Lizard on November 29, 2021, 11:29:29 PMSpeaking of, Carrie-Anne Moss might be a good pick for this thread. Between The Matrix and Memento in quick succession, you'd think she would've been in incredibly high demand, but I don't think she really did much else. Same exact thing goes for Joe Pantoliano, come to think of it.
Quote from: Ignatius_S on November 29, 2021, 09:49:51 PMTwo for the price of one - F. Murray Abraham and Tom Hulce, hailed for their performances in Amadeus, didn't have the run of big roles or the career bounce that was expected.I had read that Hulce said that casting directors so associated him with the Mozart role that it hampered his chances when going up for other roles. IIRC, there was a successful play he starred in, which they then did a film of but decided to go with someone else, which tied into that. That said, from what I've read, Hulce is quite a private person and doesn't enjoy publicity, so not the person likely to crave stardom. In any case, he much prefers directing for a good while.

Quote from: dissolute ocelot on November 30, 2021, 10:17:10 AMF Murray Abraham was more of a theatre actor, although he popped up in lots of small film roles before his 2000s return with Homeland and Wes Anderson.
