While Renée Zellweger's turn as Judy Garland in her darker times in Judy is earning Oscar buzz, Garland's career cannot be defined merely by its sad end. From Meet Me In St. Louis to A Star is Born (pictured) and, of course, The Wizard of Oz, her icon status was well-cemented before her ultimate downfall.
Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by Todd Haynes
This arresting feature debut from the always interesting Todd Haynes explores human differences and alienation in the form of three seamlessly interweaved storylines. Genuinely subversive, even if its parts are sometimes greater than the whole, this film feels like the truest form of independent cinema -- endlessly inventive despite its low budget.
