Living in Oblivion (1995)

Now you talk about a movie begging for a re-watch -- I haven't seen this movie since it came out, for sure. I don't even remember what it's about -- all I remember is how very very 90s it was, even at the time. A movie starring Keener and Steve Buscemi and Dermot Mulroney? Come on!
that godawful Ryan Reynolds movie last week, and that was even before they introduced a terrifying de-aged nightmare version of her which turned that shit straight into uncanny camp.
The de-aged/CG/deepfaked/whatever-the-hell-they-did young version of Catherine Keener in THE ADAM PROJECT is freaking uncanny valley pic.twitter.com/qoC1orywmU— Abner Pastoll (@abnerpastoll) March 11, 2022
Christ that movie sucked. But Keener, bless her fiery heart, came out smelling fine. Has she ever not? She's always been worth watching; I can't think of anything where she hasn't been. Even if it's a nothing movie she'll waltz in and class the joint up a hint with her delicious sardonic Keener-ness for a sec. Now that I'm talking about her proper-like I feel like doing a list of favorite performances, but maybe I should hold off until 2024 when she turns 65. (How optimistic of me, assuming we'll all still be living people in two years.) For now I'll just ask y'all...
What's your favorite Catherine Keener performance?
