There are certain actors whom I follow simply because they are a joy to watch. They ply their craft with such subtlety and skill that it’s like watching a symphony unfold on a pliant face. It’s a short list. Gillian Anderson just made it. House of Mirth was a remarkable vehicle for a highly skilled and greviously underrated actor. For two hours and fifteen minutes I watched as her character became deeper and deeper, and found myself a great deal more emotionally involved than I usually get. The supporting roles are also excellent. I think I may have to kill Laura Linney, just because she was so deliciously evil. I find I’m wishing fervently for the end of the X-Files. No more television for Gillian. Gillian needs to make movies. Lots and lots of wonderful movies.
