You're certainly right about that one being disturbing, but my votes go for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Paul Newman, Burl Ives!) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Both well worth the time. I night have to re-watch Butterfield 8, though.
A newer movie that I can't get out of my system was My Favorite Year, with Peter O'Toole. Not a classic by any stretch but I totally dug the Alan Swann character.
Is it me, or has "acting" gone out of style?
