She played Natasha in a reading of The Three Sisters that Al Pacino put together at The Actors Studio.

Her first work as director was Take Flight, a short documentary film about Gary Oldman. It is about Oldman’s creative process. He has said, “Juliet Landau is an exceptional talent! I entrusted Juliet to make a documentary film about me and I am thrilled with the results! Take Flight is a special film that shows me in a very different light. I will work with Juliet again without hesitation.”[10] She has written the short film, It’s Raining Cats and Cats and adapted Andrew Prine‘s play Cissy into a short as well.She will helm these projects. She portrayed Claire in the British horror film Haunted Echoes, who was directed by Harry Bromley Davenport.

In 2009 Juliet Landau co-wrote two issues of the Angel comic book series for IDW Publishing, in collaboration with Brian Lynch. The issues (#24 and #25 of the series, appearing in August and September 2009) feature Drusilla, the character she played on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. In addition to writing, she contributed numerous ideas and references for both the cover and interior art of the issues. She has stated that she would like to write more comics set in the Buffyverse. She will be writing a 5 part Drusilla miniseries from Dark Horse Comics this year, which is now delayed.

“In the current climate of parody, pastiche, re-hashing, re-booting and recycling of films, it is so refreshing to see a film as unique, original and enjoyable as Strange Frame...a rare film: inspiration by other forms is noticeable, but it is not merely repetition or homage. It is a dreamscape, one that does not shy aware from the ugly, yet celebrates the beautiful.” - Shelagh M. Rowan-Legg, Twitch Film

"probably one of the most visually riveting movies released in recent years. The energy and beauty of the animation, and the strength of its vocal performers (particularly Curry, who is the definitive voice actor for flamboyant evil) keep this story of love up among the stars." - Adam Mohrbacher, FilmMonthly

"It’s thrilling, sexy, entertaining due to it’s massive amount of music and visual stimulation, but more importantly, a story that has a deep meaning and a refreshing plotline. This film has cult classic written all over it.” - AJ Garcia, Shakefire

“Some films are instant cult classics the minute they appear. G.B.Hajim's STRANGE FRAME is one such film.” – Heather Massey, The Galaxy Express

"Not since WIZARDS have I enjoyed a rock musical with animation this much. Speaking of animation the characters are exquisite…The smooth flow of this cutting edge film is more than sci-fi animation – it is an experience not to be missed." – Jeri Jacquin, Movie Maven

"an electrifying trip for the eyeballs, fully embracing a visual style that, at most, very few films share." - Tyler Foster , DVDTalk

"What the fuck? No really. What the fuck? I must have said that at least twenty times while watching this crazy, visual trip of a film…I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen and will be tuning in again for repeat viewings." – Mike Gencarelli, MediaMikes

"If youʻre a sci-fi fan this a must see…like a vintage issue of Heavy Metal come to life and given depth. The graphics alone could make Strange Frame a head-turner, but then add to it a legendary sci-fi voice cast…it's own beast, and well worth a look if you get a chance.” – Brett Cullum, DVD Verdict

"One could call Strange Frame the best animated motion comic, except that it is not a comic…the combination of the hand-painted, computer assisted animation and CGI results in a very unique look. This will draw in a lot of people, even if they are not drawn in by the story. Personally, I was fascinated with both." – C.S. Strowbridge, The Numbers

"If ever you wondered what a truly unhinged mash-up of the dominant production styles of Heavy Metal, Barbarella and Blade Runner would look like, here’s your chance." – Danielle Riendeau, AfterEllen

"The animation is very much like something out of a dream.” - Alexander Bustos, Comic Attack

“the film excels is with the music…soulful jazz riffs on solo saxophone that will make your heart ache just listening to them.” – Siobhan Greene, Fangoria

“ the visuals are what made this movie. Think 1960's acid trip meets dreamlike anime film and add in a futuristic space setting. At the start of the movie, you feel overwhelmed by how much is going on at once. Then, once you realize Hajim knows exactly what he's doing with all of these elements, it's easy to sit back, relax and let the story take the wheel.” -Jade Salazar, Tagg Magazine

“the movie goes out of its way for its consumers. It has danceable songs, spaceships, nipples, clever dialogue…it is not only a Blade Runner movie but also an A Star Is Born movie…” - Jason Rohrer, Stage and Cinema

“just what the doctor ordered” - Karman Kregloe, Huffington Post
