The prompt reminds me of an acclaimed Filipino movie released in 1985 – Bituing Walang Ningning -, which translates to ‘star without luster’. It was in this movie where one of those memorable lines was delivered by the supporting actress – “You’re nothing but a second-rate, trying hard copycat!” Nothing beats controversial lines like that in movies.
The versatile actress named Cherie Gil who played as a famous singer threatened by a newcomer in the industry was very effective in her role. That kind where you almost hate her for being so vile in her realistic role.
I always find that I admire villain roles. To be the hero or the main character in a movie seems easier to portray especially those who star in ‘feel-good’ ones. A villain’s role objective always appear to me that they have to draw from the audience that expected hatred or annoyance. Ms. Cherie Gil had proven her mettle for a long time.
Is this only me, or do you also find that these artists that play villain roles are more talented and effective?
