David Denby on Meryl Streep
From the New Yorker review of JULIE AND JULIA. "The movie is memorable, of course, for Streep’s performance. Like a tall ship at full sail, she leans, tilts, and billows. Odd explosions of air—whoops, exclamations—come hurtling through the passageways. She runs out of breath, and then settles, mysteriously, like an old Bible that italicizes ordinary words, on a single syllable."
