She's pretty good when she gets a hold of the right material, usually colorful comedies.
The Wicker Man (1974) -- A one-of-a-kind movie. The film, in part, is a discussion of our deep-rooted beliefs and how it affects the way we live our daily lives and government. For much of the movie, we think Edward Woodward is just a Puritanical prude, but eventually everything is turned on its head and we have to re-examine what the movie was having us re-examining. Though not a standard horror movie at all (it's just as much a detective movie), it does have some truly horrifying moments, especially at the end. And it's a musical! (And a good one.) You become more fond of the movie the more you think about it, and I can see why a cult has arisen around it.
