Anjelica Huston works with Wes Anderson for the second time in "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou."

ANJELICA: I think strong men - and this is maybe because of the experience I’ve had in my life - I think strong men have tremendous charm who are somehow unable to commit to a life of conformity, who through their power and charisma take people aboard, often at their own risk.

 Gerald Peary - essays - Anjelica Huston
For mass audiences, Anjelica Huston is probably most popular for what's among her easiest acting parts, hamming it up, all chalkface, rouge, and ruby-red fingernail polish, as the amiable walking-dead mom, Morticia, in The Addams Family (1991) and The Addams Family Values (1993).
But true students of cinema know that Huston is one of those so-rare Hollywood actresses who consistently digs deep, whose respect for her craft assures that she accept only the most demanding, psychologically rewarding roles.
Huston's spent quality time in the Woody Allen repertoire company, superb as the dreary, needy mistress who becomes a murder victim in Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989), then, as a single novelist with an eye for married men, breezing through several hot scenes of Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993).
