This lunchtime's time-sink.

Reading that article about independent filmmakers, I recalled a couple of movies I saw in either the late 1980s or early 1990s (because I could remember the cinema I saw them in - the Everyman). I could remember vaguely the stories, and the main actress (the same in both). Not the name, nor the director.

I google "independent films 1990s". Lots of interesting links, nothing that clicks.

Ditto with "independent films 1980s".

I google "independent film lips", because the actress had amazing lips. Frankly, you don't want to go there. There are an awful lots of fan-sites about actresses' lips.

I have a hunch that the lead actor was in a film from the 1990s with one of the actresses in "Friends".

I google "actress friends". Lisa Kudrow.

Search her filmography. "The Opposite of Sex".

Look at the actors. Martin Donovan.

Search his filmography. Bingo: "Trust" (1990) and "The Unbelievable Truth" (1989).

They were directed by Hal Hartley. The actress was Adrienne Shelley. She died in 2006, the victim of a murder.

She directed Waitress. I didn't realise. It is an oddly charming film.

I don't recall seeing. The Hal Hartley films were excellent - quirky and "independent".
