Sketchy Rec: Because of her much expected and well received win at the Tony Awards, I cannot get Angela Lansbury off my brain. How about revisiting her in a strange minor masterpiece called The Company of Wolves? She is sensational in this warped werewolf/fairy tale/coming of age/dark fantasy hybrid film about a young girl undergoing a sexual awakening through a dream. The practical effects are some of the best you will ever encounter, even if one performance is so distractingly bad it brings down the film. If you want to think of a more modern comparison, this film is everything The Brothers Grimm could and should have been.
