Bright Angel

Bright Angel

This seems to be the movie of which Lili is the least proud. As someone commented in an interview: "this movie seems to have disappeared from your bio." While this movie got good reviews from a few sources including "Two thumbs Up" from Siskel and Ebert it's also true that this movie contains one of Lili's rare uninspired performances. The whole thing may have to do with a personality conflict with the director. Lili herself has said that she felt the director wanted her to play a "vampy, sexy, spread-for-anything kind of girl". Not exactly what they ended up with. Despite all this the movie has worthwhile moments.

Favorite scene: This is a tough tell the truth nothing really stands out for me. The scene where Lili and Dermot are chained together in the rain is well done but hard to watch.
