Next up is “Arthur”, another remake of 2011, though not in the same league as “Brighton Rock”.

Today’s final spotlight is a favorite of mine – probably not a lot of people’s favorite – but I was hooked by Paul Schrader’s 1990 “The Comfort of Strangers” and Helen’s daring performance.

This movie spotlight remains one of the hardest-to-find. “Bethune” chronicles the life and career of Dr. Norman Bethune and is Donald Sutherland’s second time he has played this role after a first, very successful performance in the 1970s. This version, in which Helen plays his wife, has had less luck and wasn’t released for years. I’ve only found a French DVD version, so we have some beautiful screencaptures, but no clips, due to the DVD track’s dubbing. To learn more about the project, visit the career page. Posters and screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
