For being a great actress, humanitarian, mother, artist and daring human being.
love her – love that picture. I actually watched Michael Clayton yesterday on the On demand channel. God, what a great film and great supporting performance!
She is so incredible, one of the few actors working today who’s movies I will see regardless simply because she is in them. Having said that though, I have somehow yet to see We Need to Talk About Kevin, I read the book before the movie came out and couldn’t bring myself to sit through all that horror again!
One of the two or three best actresses of her generation. <3 Top 10 Tilda Swinton.

The only Tilda film that is terrible: THE MAN FROM LONDON
Cannot wait for Bong Joon-ho's SNOWPIERCER, Jim Jarmusch's ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, Terry Gilliam's THE ZERO THEOREAM, and Wes Anderson's THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL…Goddamn, girl is on a roll!
There aren’t many actors whose every performance is worth watching and who seem to keep their won beat when not in front of the camera. She’s great.
I thought she was one of my favorite actresses working in cinema until I saw her and heard her at Telluride last year. After the Q&A, I know longer thought that. I knew it.
I just picked up a copy of a Tilda movie i had never heard of – ‘Stephanie Daley’ – a 2006 flick.
She is always watchable and has made some fascinating choices.
Along with Cate Blanchet, one of the best actresses working today.
I always felt she should have been Oscar nominated for her performance in “I Am Love” – a really beautiful performance.
I also thought she gave another stellar supporting performance in the Coens’ “Burn After Reading”.
Although I haven’t seen this movie, apparently it is a little known gem of a relatively unknown film that is talked about on this site periodically. The film dealt with alcoholism – “Julia”. I would really love to see that movie sometime.
I, too, am also looking forwad to “The Grand Budapest Hotel”. Check out that cast on IMBD! If realized, it should be a terrific film!
Off subject – but I just saw Oz The Great and Powerful last weekend. TOTALLY underwhelmed. What a piece of shit movie. It contains Disneyland’s newest “OZ, the River Raft” ride.
I have to mention ‘Orlando’ – the first movie I saw Tilda in – what a revelation she was and is. I think it was her film debut (someone will disabuse me of that, if not so). Sally Potter’s film was such a visual feast and the emphatic step forward of one of the most compelling film actresses of the past 3 decades.
She should be the owner of the Academy Award Meryl Street took home last year. Absolutely amazing actress.
I think she’s my favorite one. Tllda’s one of a kind
agree with you completely
Both Blanchett and Swinton have been making incredible choices for more than a decade now, and have been working with both conventionally and non-conventionally important directors.
Both have the androgynously angelic feel about them, which always forces me to give them extra points.
and yes, I too had the “WTF” reaction while watching OZ
For me as well. Orlando was the first movie I saw her in, back in 1993.
