Chloe made history in this film.
It's effective enough, but it's a multi-lingual art film told in reverse, and an unpleasant one at that, so 99 viewers of 100 will find to be utterly unwatchable.
You could probably reverse the order in each category and have just as good a list.
I tried to include the most meritorious performances and I tried to restrict the list to major actresses eliminating obscure films and performers like Margo Stiller in 9 Songs , so I felt pretty good about the choices on the list.
The British critics ripped this film apart so mercilessly that it was never released in North American theaters.
