Siren Kirsten Has A Touch Of Evil

nytimes.com has a preview of this weekend’s New York Times Magazine’s annual Hollywood Issue. “Vamps. Crooks & Killers” features 13 of this year’s great performers trying on the black hat & impersonating specific icons of unpleasantness or tapping into the primal fears that remain a potent source of pleasure and discomfort at the movies. The ability of these actors to disturb us with a gesture, a change of expression or a simple stare only serves to make us like them more.

The featured actors & actresses are Jessica Chastain, George Clooney, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Jean Dujardin, Kirsten Dunst, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Adepero Oduye, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Michael Shannon & Mia Wasikowska.

Touch Of Evil” features a video gallery of cinematic villainy.

Behind The Scenes has details of the “Hollywood Issue” & “Vamps, Crooks & Killers” features a slide-show of pics.
