With the performance Susan Sarandon just turned in as tobacco heiress, Doris Duke, in "Bernard & Doris," co-starring Ralph Fiennes, I have to presume that Sarandon has become an acting force with whom to be reckoned. Lauren Bacall had previously played Doris Duke, co-starring Richard Chamberlain. And although I couldn't be a bigger fan of both actors, I must admit that Sarandon's performance is brilliant. Sarandon brought Doris Duke to life for me. Fiennes' Bernard makes a perfect match for the way Sarandon plays Doris. But it's Sarandon who tapped into the feel of Doris' persona that makes the film work so well. Newer films tend to bore me because the scripts are lousy, degenerate even, and there's an overall tendency to make the art of films far too small. (Ron Howard's "Da Vinci Code" is one fine exception). Sarandon seems to get it that art needs to be larger than life because people need characteristics to aspire to. Therefore, Susan Sarandon is one of the few younger actors whose films intrigue me like the older ones do.
