I was tagged by http://christawojo.com/ for a blog tag link on favorite film characters. Here we go although not sure about order. I highly recommend all of these films but note they are dark. Anyone who follows this blog is welcome to post their own and link back to this one so I can see your choices.
Alicia Huberman (Ingrid Bergman) in Notorious (Hitchcock), 1946. Incredibly brave, reckless, double agent, tormented by hot and cold boyfriend and by Nazis.
Gilda (Rita Hayworth) in Gilda, 1946. The plot is a bit convoluted, not as good as Notorious, what it aspires to be, but still must-see film. She’s the quintessential femme fatale.
Madeleine (Kim Novak) in Vertigo (Hitchock). Enchanting, Hitchcock poetic muse. A true victim of circumstances in one of the best psychoanalytic films ever.
David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) in American Werewolf in London, 1981. Likable characters in this black comedy who make an unlucky acquaintance with a werewolf.
Veronica Sawyer (Winona Ryder), Heathers, 1988. New girl meets mean girls. New girl kills mean girls.
Rynn (Jodie Foster), The Little Girl who Lives Down the Lane, 1976. She’s only 13, but Rynn knows how to survive alone in the world and protect herself against adults who would harm her.
Stacy Hamilton (Jennifer Jason Leigh), Fast Times at Ridgemont High, 1982. She comes of age fast, really fast. Leigh is an amazing actress and character is heartbreaking.
Ripley (Signourney Weaver) in Alien, 1979. She’s tough and she fights aliens.
Rachael (Sean Young), Bladerunner, 1982. An incredibly beautiful but unlucky android caught in a human’s world.
Antoine Daniel (Jean-Pierre Leaud), Les Quatre-Cents Coups (400 Blows), 1959. Misunderstood youth, neglected by his parents, in a fantastic New Wave film that makes you cry.
