I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

I suppose Minnie Driver's Sylark won't be dominating this thread?

And of course, Nicole Kidman is clearly number 1. Unless there is a large, secret fanbase of "Even Cowgirls Get The Blues" fans out there.

I can't do a top 5, Gerry didn't have any ladies, while Elephant and Paranoid Park did have ladies but they were meant to aimlessly blend into the background like the men in this pictures. I do have a top three though,

1) Suzanne Stone Moretto - To Die For
2) Nadine - Drugstore Cowboy
3) Dianne - Drugstore Cowboy

But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Sir, my girlfriends say you guys don't like women.  Just asking, is there a place for us in all this, or are you scared of girls?
