Even though she’s only 31-years-old, her resume is packed full of choices for the list of five best Alison Lohman movies. By her early 20’s, Lohman was starring in films for A-list directors with major movie stars, but that hasn’t stopped her from making some surprising choices in recent years.
- “Big Fish.” The first film on the list of five best Alison Lohman movies is one of Tim Burton’s most underrated projects. More low key than the over-the-top Burton films like “Alice in Wonderland” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Big Fish” still tells a grand tale with a unique visual style.
- “Matchstick Men.” The 2003 Nicholas Cage/Sam Rockwell con-men film “Matchstick Men” is the next entry on the list of five best Alison Lohman movies. The young actress holds her own against two of Hollywood’s strongest stars in the complex plot, which is masterfully directed by Ridley Scott.
- “White Oleander” The then 23-year-old actress played a fifteen year-old in the next film on the list of five best Alison Lohman movies. Lohman carries this dark and complex movie, starring opposite Tinseltown legends like Michelle Pfeiffer, Robin Wright, Billy Connolly, and Renee Zellweger.
- “Things We Lost in the Fire.” Another film worthy of being included on the list of five best Alison Lohman movies is “Things We Lost in the Fire.” The gripping story of loss and drug addiction co-starring Halle Berry, Benicio del Toro, and David Duchovny was not a box office success but garnered lots of critical acclaim.
- “Drag Me to Hell.” The final film on the list of five best Alison Lohman movies is a little bit lighter and a whole lot scarier than the rest. In 2009, Lohman took the journey with director Sam Raimi as he returned to his horror movie roots. Raimi stayed true to the tone of his early “Evil Dead” series with the campy and creepy “Drag Me to Hell.”
