The 50 Most Daring Film Roles For Women Since Ripley

This article was originally printed on June 26, 2015 in The Dissolve. I'm sure it's already been posted on Stage 32, but I felt it was worth risking a repeat...The 50 Most Daring Film Roles For Women Since Ripley. It's a long list of wonderful films and incredibly talented female actors. I would suggest adding Alicia Vikander as Gerda, The Danish Girl (2015). Who would you add to the list? https://thedissolve.com/features/the-dissolve-canon/1081-the-most-daring...

How about Alicia Vikander in Pure, too. Emily Blunt in Sicario was badass, as well as Shu Qi in The Assassin. I'll watch Michelle Williams always, and she should be in this list--at least for Blue Valentine or Meek's Cutoff. And from my favorite film this year so far, The Witch, Anya Taylor-Joy.

These are great additions! Alicia Vikander was also amazing in Ex Machina and A Royal Affair. She's one of my favorites, but I still need to see Pure. Emily Blunt is another favorite of mine and Michelle Williams gave a powerful performance in Blue Valentine...I haven't seen Meek's Cutoff. I'm not yet familiar with Anya Taylor-Joy, but I will make it a point to see The Witch. Three more movies for me to see...another movie marathon this weekend. : ) Thanks for sharing, Edwin! Oh, I almost forgot Shu-Qi in The Assassin...make it four!

Oh, and Charlotte Rampling in 45 Years!

Absolutely, Charlotte Rampling is brilliant in everything, from Stardust Memories and The Look, to her guest appearances on Dexter! It's powerful to play such a memorable character in a series about killers, without being a character that actually kills. : ) I haven't seen 45 Years, so it is now on my 'must-see' list, to which you have now added five films. Thanks again, Edwin...and keep 'em comin'!
