Beauty | Rebel Belles at

Can ladies raise some hell? Yes, according to slideshow, on screen they can.
We have The Better Half Belle (Faye Dunaway as Bonnie), The Undercover Lover (Pam Grier in Foxy Brown), The Killer Clone (Daryl Hannah as Pris), The Good Girls Gone Bad (Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon as Thelma and Louise Sawyer), The Runaway Rambler (Patricia Arquette as Alabama Whitman), The American Psycho (Juliette Lewis as Mallory), The Rebel With a Cause (Lori Petty as Tank Girl), The Web Wizard (Angelina Jolie as Kate a.k.a. Acid Burn), The Savvy Survivor (Uma Thurman as The Bride), The Righteous Ones (Salma Hayek and Penélope Cruz as Sara Sandoval and Maria Alvarez), The Punk Provocateur (Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander), The Young Gun (Saoirse Ronan as Hanna), and The Wild Child (Kara Hayward as Suzy).
Thirteen isn’t quite enough, I say.
Femme Fatales, and I throw them in the rebel bucket, have a long cinematographic history; Dominique Mainon and James Ursini’s Femme Fatale: Cinema's Most Unforgettable Lethal Ladies counts well over thirteen, starting with Theda Bara who portrayed Carmen, Camille, Salome, Madame Du Barry and Cleopatra pre-1930s Hollywood repression a.k.a. Code.
