In the past few weeks, more and more people have been seeing Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, either by way of his 70mm roadshow screenings or otherwise. Reviews have been mixed (though our Jim Tudor loved it) but everyone agrees its cast is stellar. And one of the people in that cast is Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is also in Anomalisa. Time for a quiz about her!

For Jennifer Jason Leigh is a great actress with a great taste in projects. Her resumeé includes many interesting and thought-provoking indies, and the odd fondly remembered classic as well. Just look at the directors she's worked with and you end up with a very interesting list indeed, and it's no surprise Quentin Tarantino is now on it too.

Therefore, once again I'm going to use eleven pictures of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images, and guess which movies or shows they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb!

And I'll post the answers next Thursday, or earlier if someone gets all of them right...


Peter Martin, Juan J. Espinoza, James Marsh, Kurt Halfyard and Zach Gayne contributed to this story.

And here she is, as Daisy Domergue in Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight!

This picture doesn't count yet for the quiz, but all others do, so please browse through the gallery: click on the edge of the picture to get the next one, and see how many of them all you can identify!

#3 Single White Female

Of course I can get the easy one. I feel like I should know #1, #2 & #4 though. Great pics. Looking forward to the results.

Is #2 The Hudsucker Proxy? Was she even in that? No, I don't know. That can't be it.

You have #3 correct! And yes, she was in HUDSUCKER PROXY but no, #2 ain't from that.

Ard VijnJanuary 2, 2016 2:45 PM

All correct except #9!! Very impressive.

Ard VijnJanuary 2, 2016 2:47 PM

All correct! Though Raaflrallrlrl Drylan Marusuewi and ManateeAdvocate were ahead of you on all.

That just leaves #9 (which ironically I had counted among the easier ones...)

Time to watch Existenz again. That flick blew my little mind back in the day. I still have yet to watch The Machinist.

That's why these quizzes are doubly fun. They get me to re-watch great films or dig out gems I've ignored.

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 2, 2016 3:07 PM

The Hitcher will always be my favorite film of hers. I still love that flick to this day. It does everything right for me as a film fan.

Jerry SköldJanuary 3, 2016 2:43 AM

ExistenZ is pretty awesome, and one of my enduring favourites. I haven´t watched the Machinist either, but now that I know that JJL is in it it might have just gotten a boost on my list.

Stephen Brent DawsonJanuary 3, 2016 9:09 AM

Are you sure that isn't "Georgia?" I could have sworn that was one of the opening scenes.

Ard VijnJanuary 3, 2016 10:56 AM

Ugh, me and my big mouth. And my corrupt image database (brain and computer). I would have put money on that shot being from RUSH, but yes, it indeed is GEORGIA.

Ard VijnJanuary 3, 2016 10:57 AM

Ugh, as pointed out elsewhere in this thread: that shot actually is from GEORGIA.
