Powerful, extraordinary woman (like Condoleezza!)
13 March 2003 | by FilmartDDSee all my reviews

Seen years ago at the Sydney Film Festival in the full power of black-and-white Scope 35mm, the memory has never left me. Even on Tv in the tremendous, properly subtitled Classics on Australia's wonderful SBS network, still heartrending and awesome. This is the most intensely dedicated female in the history of movies. Bette Davis, eat your heart out. Joan Crawford, vanquished at last. Condoleezza, we know where you come from!
