Happy Oscar Sunday, for those who celebrate: On the subtle, astonishing film "Living," the how-then-shall-we-live theme that pulses through this year's nominees, and who I'm rooting for tonight.
100% for Women Talking. I think greatness of that movie is yet to be fully comprehended. I read a review that mentioned it was hard for him ( of course it was a him) to keep the characters separate and left him frustrated (insert chuckle at will). I replied "It depends on whether or not that it was intentional. If it wasn't, and therefore a by-product, he may have a point. If it was in fact intentional, then Sarah Polley is a genius in a two-fold genius, first that she understood it and second she communicated that vision in an understandable way to all the actors. The impact of their common bond in trauma went that deep.
I'll keep a scorecard! Nicely said.
