It was very emotional and entertaining, but I really felt like I was being swept up in a current with no idea where I was heading. And that's one of the best experiences I've had with artsy-fartsy films. If art house films were all we had I'd have to give up movies entirely.
I'm not too keen on the Oscar's really, it's just a bunch of hoity-toity old men and women deciding that something is good when it's really rather garbage. Good films do make it on the list, but really when the Hobbit doesn't make Best Picture when it has double the room, something's terribly wrong.
