100 of Something Encouraging artistic exploration

One of my all-time favorites!


Sydney Pollack's "Tootsie" stars Dustin Hoffman as the consummate out-of-work actor: He's constantly complaining about the lack of jobs and yet every time he lands a part, he loses it, burns a bridge or somehow alienates the director/cast/crew by being ridiculously difficult (in service of the part of course!).

Tootsie is both a send-up of the reputation of the "difficult" actor as well as a telling portrayal of gender stereotypes.

Join us, won't you?
