But sometimes, the captions help a little.
|We Need to Talk About Kevin (Lynne Ramsay, 2011)|
|I Am Love (Luca Guadagnino, 2010)|
With her performances as Eva in Kevin and as Emma in I Am Love, Tilda Swinton is the only actor to make my list of Top Ten performances two years in a row
|Julia (Erick Zonca, 2008)|
What I considered to be the performance of her career pre-Kevin, Julia received such a poor release that it's borderline criminal. (It was briefly released in theatres in 2009, only coming to Canada on DVD in early 2010.) Whenever I hear Eurythmics' 'Sweet Dreams', I immediately picture that scene of Julia on the prowl on the dance floor, kinda like how one can't help but remember Faye Wong dancing in Chungking Express to the tune of 'California Dreamin'.
|The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (David Fincher, 2008)|
|Burn After Reading (Joel Coen & Ethan Coen, 2008)|
Lookin' fierce with an Edna Krabappel hair cut.
|Michael Clayton (Tony Gilroy, 2007)|
Well, sometimes Oscar gets it right, pit stains and all.
|Stephanie Daley (Hilary Brougher, 2006)|
In fairness, nobody saw Stephanie Daley, but then... who saw A Better Life?
|The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (Andrew Adamson, 2005)|

|Broken Flowers (Jim Jarmusch, 2005)|
There are cameos and then there are Tilda Swinton cameos.
|Adaptation. (Spike Jonze, 2002)|
My two favourite actresses in the same frame!
(It's the little things that count.)
|Vanilla Sky (Cameron Crowe, 2001)|
|The Deep End (Scott McGehee, David Siegel; 2001)|
|Possible Worlds (Robert Lepage, 2000)|
|Orlando (Sally Potter, 1992)|
The performance that started it all.
