This is mostly for you men. Have any of you watched North Woods on Animal Planet? It is about the Game Wardens in Maine and the hunters. It is really interesting. Looking for lost hunters at night, illegal shooting of animals, poaching, etc. Everything you can imagine happening in the woods in the summer with visitors and winter. Coming from a woman's point of view, very much worth watching.

Her sister Rosanna is quite good too.

Her most memorable performance for me was her portrayal of the girlfriend of Gary Gilmore in the screenplay adaption of The Executioners Song by, Norman Mailer.

The book and movie were very dark but both very good IMO.

The Executioner's Song: Norman Mailer: 9780375700811: Amazon.com: Books


The Executioner's Song (1982) - IMDb


Edit: Friends are one of lifes most precious attributes Vitauta. Welcome to my small circle. :)

Jeff
rosanna, oh yes! the arquettes are a remarkably gifted family of artists. off-center in a wonderful sort of way. remember rosanna in desperately seeking susan, also in the 1980s? she even made madonna look good in that movie--madonna who looks good in other arenas, but not generally in films where acting is required. i will look up the executioner's song. i'm not for a lot of visual violence in movies, but i do nonetheless have a penchant for blue films and serious drama.
jeff, how do i look up 'filmography' or body of works for other actors or artists?

As I remember it the only violent scenes in the movie were the murders (2) and I don't remember these scenes as being particularly graphic.

I don't like gratuitous violence in films either (I'll never watch another Quentin Tarantino movie, the guy is seriously disturbed) but the violence in The Executioners Song while disturbing is brief and pertinent to the story.

That sounds interesting Addie. I don't have cable but I'll check that show out at mom's if she's interested.

Speaking of "Northern", remember Northern Exposure?

That was a really good show.

I am so glad I found this show. These men do an outstanding job.
