It’s Meryl vs. Goldie as Lyndsey picks the “immortal” 1992 classic Death Becomes Her.
Talking points: A mean and catty movie. No trailers for Lyndsey. Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn as rivals. Fighting over milquetoast Bruce Willis. Morbidly obese cat lady. No positive qualities in these characters. The Robert Zemeckis eye for detail. Cosmetologist for the dead. Isabella Rossellini. Eternal life. Iconic imagery. A timeless world. Wardrobe. Lessons learned. Sean’s favorite line. Kevin Kline. The floating nun anomaly. Dead celebrity party. The funeral. Don’t drink the potion. Alternate Swiss Alps ending. Brave roles for women. The duality of Goldie Hawn. Alan Silvestri’s score. Lyndsey’s VHS memories. Critical reception. The cult legacy of the film. Bruce’s Babylonian pontoons. Buy it/rent it/tape over it. Cynical Zemeckis. Gearing up for Halloween.
