A brief list of her adult movies (I also have some of the kids movies -- and I'm referring to adult roles, not when she was an adult):
1) "Taxi Driver"
2) "Silence of The Lambs" (Oscar win for Jodie)
3) "The Accused" (Oscar win for Jodie)
4) "Home For The Holidays" (Jodie doesn't act in this, she directs it)
5) "Little Man Tate" (Jodie acts and directs the film)
6) "Inside Man" (the only great film Spike Lee's directed, sadly -- he's made promising films but this is the only one that works -- most of his f fall apart with the endings)
7) "The Brave One"
9) "Panic Room" (I once watched this one every night for 3 months, I love this movie)
13) "Nim's Island"
That's DVD. If I include video there's a bit more.
One film I don't have is "Somersby."
I like Richard Gere. He's good in a lot of films.
And I've seen "Somersby" many times. And sometimes think, "I should get this." On DVD. But then I'll rent it or stream it (just rent currently, Amazon's not offering it for rental) and remember how Jodie disappears in large sections of the film.
At times, the entire film is about Richard Gere and a young boy. I like to think of it as "The Michael Jackson Story." And there's this scene that I just hate. Richard's probably getting props from White people for it but to me it pisses me off.
It's set right after the Civil War, the film is. And he's a tobacco farmer. He needs help with the crops. If you farm a section of the land, it can be your land regardless of your color. So some people (racists) get upset that Blacks are getting land.
They grab this one man and beat him up -- they're in KKK hoods at this point and it's night. And they start to shoot him and Richard Gere steps in front of him. Okay, good. But then after they're gone, Richard's basically dismissive and telling the man to "Go home." Jodie's mingling with the family (the Black family) and giving comfort to the wife. But Richard really ticks me off in that scene. It makes me really angry.
(I'm Black, if you didn't know. So I'm sure I see that scene differently than some non-Black viewers.)
Jodie's great in the film. But that one scene is why I just don't want to own the film.
