6. For all the mugging she does for the cameras, this is probably
how she usually looks. Very telling, very evil.

15. No caption, just an observation
Judy Miller reminds me so much of Ellen Burstyn's "Chris MacNeil" from the Exorcist.



Which makes me laugh because of the Iraq sequence in the movie and the fact that Judy's help stirring up shit about Iraq might bring down BFEE.


Here's a synopsis (spoiler alert if you haven't seen "The Exorcist":










"After a few blood-red credits on a black background, the film opens with a prologue. The locale is an archaeological dig site deep in the arid desert of Northern Iraq - near the ancient town of Nineveh. An Arabic prayer is chanted on the soundtrack behind an image of an oblong, burnt-reddish sun. Workers dig inexorably with pick-axes through mounds of dirt to uncover ancient artifacts. A young boy in a red head-dress runs through the weaving, maze-like trenches to summon one of the supervisors. The camera shoots through his legs as he speaks in Arabic: "(Subtitle): They found something...small pieces...At the base of the mound."

Father Lankester Merrin (Max von Sydow), an elderly, scholarly Jesuit Catholic priest and archaeologist, is told that ancient objects have been unearthed during his search for evil: "Lamps, arrowheads, coins..." Merrin inspects a small silver, Christian medallion (depicting Mary and the baby Jesus) and observes that it is unusual to find it buried in a pre-Christian location: "This is strange...Not of the same period." Merrin then digs in a crevice near the Christian objects and discovers a small, greenish, gargoyle-like stone amulet or statuette .

***
After driving his jeep to an ancient temple ruins guarded by armed, white and black-garbed watchmen, he walks up to a full-sized stone statue of the demon Pazuzu. Nearby, two dogs begin fighting and snarling at each other in the dust. He again has a premonition that the amulet is a concrete manifestation that something evil has been unearthed - the soundtrack simulates an eerie, shrieking chord, symbolizing the loosing of ancient, pagan evil in the world. The camera zooms in on the face of the open-mouthed, fearsome creature. As he confronts the demonic statue that has been called up for protection by the amulet's discovery, the wind blows dust over the scene as he feels all around him the presence of the devil.

In a clever transitional dissolve linking two distant locales and their coincidental association, the scene from the desert (a sizzling view of the orb of the dawning sun) dissolves into the sounds and views of early morning traffic crossing the Potomac in Georgetown outside Washington, D.C. The camera zooms into one of the Georgetown houses where a hand turns on a different kind of bright light - a white electric lamp. Inside her bedroom, divorced mother and actress Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn, reportedly modeling her role on actress Shirley MacLaine) is working on lines in her latest script. She hears unsettling sounds from the attic similar to the dirt-digging sounds of the prologue. She investigates - following the sounds to her 12-year old daughter Regan's (Linda Blair) bedroom where the young girl is sleeping. The covers are pulled back and the window is inexplicably wide open with fluttering curtains - she senses a certain coldness or presence in the room. Downstairs in the kitchen, Chris instructs housekeeper Karl (Rudolf Schundler) to purchase traps for "rats in the attic." The Exorcist (1973)


LOL, from digging around in Iraq to Karl trying to get rid of "rats" to Re(a)gan (i.e, all neo-cons) speaking with a forked-tongue to spinning heads "The Exorcist" is a pretty fun movie if you use it as a metaphor for the current situation in D.C. Oh well, probably just me.

16. Wow she looks evil in those photos!
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 04:02 PM by Marie26
Actually, that photo made me shudder a little. :scared: And a big change from how she looked after she first testified:



Guess she realized she's not going to be a First Amendment media darling after all. I wonder if the NY Times has let her go? She certainly doesn't look very happy.

20. There is something dark and creepy about her.
I don't go in for trying to assign personality traits and weaknesses on someone just because they oppose me politically.. but there is something more to that woman, more than simply a "journalist". Dark side, much?
