I'm making a horror film for a school project and want to base my monster (the head anyway) off of the caveman in 'Altered States'. I need to present this idea to my film group, but I need screenshots of the caveman, and I can't find the one I had in mind.

Does anyone have a screenshot when the caveman is in the basement and the policeman is looking for him, when the caveman comes out of the shadows and his hair is sticking up like a stringy afro? This is what I'm after: hair-sticking-up-shots.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey guys! I'm new to the community. My name's Rachel, and I love William Hurt... he is one of the most attractive men ever and I adore him. That's all I have to say for now!

Current Mood: happy

Hey, My name's Afton and I'm 18 years old. I just started getting into William Hurt...the only movie of his that I've seen so far is The Big Chill, which is probably my favorite movie. I find him to be a great actor and very attractive :) Any other movies of his any of you care to recommend to me? Suggestions greatly appreciated :)

The Village
I saw The Village this afternoon. There are some semi-intelligent things said about the film in my personal journal, amongst other ramblings. Long story short, I happened to enjoy the film. Yes, Shyamalan's style is a bit belabored, and has, sadly, become predictable in its unpredictability, but that doesn't cancel out the fact that he makes very interesting films.

One review I read said that Hurt was used (as in coached, I gather) improperly in the film, meaning that he inserted long ... pauses ... into his sentences, making everything he said sound overly serious, toward ridiculous. I'd like to sit that reviewer down and have him watch Altered States end to end. Because honestly, it's patently clear, even in William Hurt's first film, that THAT IS THE WAY HE ACTS. Is it sometimes cheesy? Yes, of course. It does come off as improper and overacted in some situations. But ... well, my point was that reviewers are, more often than not, dumb. Or perhaps I should just stop reading Entertainment Weekly. Yes, that sounds about right.

In any case, The Village's saving grace, in my eyes, was the lovely and carefully-plotted UST between Hurt's and Sigourney Weaver's characters. Oh, the heartache! Ever so cute. It's to bed for me, or to watch a movie and pack. To anyone who stumbles onto this community, welcome! I know I haven't said much yet, but more is on the way.
