Richard Chamberlain in Ken Russell's "The Music Lovers"
God knows how but Chamberlain seems able to give De Niro a run for his money
in that film. I think Russell had him play the piano in slow-motion and then
speeded up the film.

Milla Jovovich (or whatever it is) in "Dazed and Confused"
The director circumnavigates her inability to act by not allowing her to say
anything (despite a major screen presense). It begins to look very odd after
a while.

>I'm wondering if anyone could suggest to me films - experimental, avante
garde, or even mainstream - that compensate for a certain lack of acting
talent in its principles by employing very creative, formalisitc editing, in
particular, or other effects, that successfully 'hide' these shortcomings.
