Subscribed. I second Meiko Kaji.
Am I really the first one here to mention Dame Judi Dench, Isabella Rossellini, or Emma Thompson? Jesus Christ.
I've always been struck by the screen presence of Claudette Colbert, and of Joan Blondell (in her many career permutations), and of Isabelle Adjani.
Along the lines of Michelle Yeoh's contributions to cinema, I can't overlook Brigitte Lin.

And that's.... bad?
I say whatever artist makes the strongest impression over a series of works. Whatever works they may be.
Is this topic on the wrong board?
I think it should be moved to "Filmmakers".
No, actresses aren't "filmmakers"; they're just eye candy for the male gaze.
jk jk, I'm a feminist. I love broads.

Feel free to share your personal list (obviously it doesn't need to be in video form)
Currently watching the TV series Broadchurch. Olivia Colman is really one fine actress, she is absolutely brilliant in the series. I have apparently watched her in many other movies but I don't recall her particularly - that's why I was surprised. Even in this series, the realisation came quite slowly.
