RAGE

Sally Potter described the movie: "Part of the subject matter of RAGE is the ugly use of beauty in the pursuit of profit. Drugged by Marketing, sapped by fear of aging, conned by the cult of celebrity… image becomes all. Jude Law, whose beauty has sometimes been held against him as an actor, made the courageous decision to accept the role of Minx - a 'celebrity super-model' and took on a kind of hyper-beauty for this persona… a ‘female’ beauty which gradually unravels as the story unfolds. Strangely, the more he became a ‘she’, coiffed and made-up - the more naked was his performance. There was great strength in his willingness to make himself vulnerable. It was an extraordinarily intense part of the shoot."

and here is Jude Law as Minx:

I personally don't care for Mr. Law. I am really excited to see Eddie Izzard though.
I would rather be having a burger and beers with my mates but I can't do that when I know I've got to dance!
