There's a lot of strong female leads in film.
But today I was thinking about villainous females in film, and I couldn't think of one that I enjoyed and found believable. What about you all?

I really enjoyed the Mags Bennet character in the FX "Justified" series.

(This movie greatly influenced Quentin Tarrantino's Kill Bill.)

Oh, wait, you want believable female villains?

Never mind.

I found Angelina Jolie as Olympias in Alexander to be very convincing, in a Mommy Dearest sort of way . . .

Angela Lansbury in The Manchurian Candidate. Even more heartlessly cruel and cunningly vicious than that bitch Jessica Harper she played in Murder, She Wrote.

@Setanta,
Bringing up Alexander is pretty villainous in itself. You are history's greatest monster!

Officer Nancy Taylor, Conviction.

SPOILER ALERT!

I just watched this movie this passed weekend. It's based on a true story in which a guy, Kenny Waters, is wrongly convicted and sent to prison for life. To get him out his high school dropout sister resolves to get her GED, a bachelor's degree, and then a law degree so that she could represent him.

Officer Nancy Taylor, who has it out for Waters, coerces two witnesses to give false testimony against him.

I hadn't even heard of this film when it came out last year. I don't recall even having seen it in The NY Times Movie Review. I came across the trailer that was on the Black Swan DVD that I had rented.

I recommend it.

@firefly,
That little girl gave me nightmares! I have seen the remake of that movie and I think Claire Brown played the mother but the child.....she could not touch the original's performance. All About Eve.........I watch it everytime it comes on.
