Girl, Interrupted

It's interesting to watch movies again after some time has passed. Last night, I watched Girl, Interrupted. I had rented it about five or four years ago. At that time, Angelina Jolie was being touted as the next big thing. Watching the movie now (after seeing most of her body of work), I see that she's rather limited as an actress, always playing the same type of character, possibly herself. She's fun to watch though, I have to give her that; I want to see Gia again now. But she is not a great actress.

Whoopi once again plays one of her wise woman roles. Clea DuVall seems interesting. I don't remember watching her before (even though I've seen 21 Grams and Girl).

As for Winona Ryder, her movies went downhill after around 1994. (Btw, how many movies has she done where she's a writer or writes in a journal/diary? I don't know, but probably most of them.) Supposedly this movie was suppose to be her "comeback" but she got overshadowed by Jolie. She still hasn't had a comeback unless you count media attention from her "shopping spree." She makes a nice somewhat detached narrator, a part that is usually given to male actors. Hopefully, she'll do something worthwhile again.
