This is the One Minute Review of Amour. It’s the one Best Picture nominee I didn’t really want to see, but I bit the bullet and saw it with Matt Conner. It’s a French film about old people dying. Who wouldn’t love that?
The Academy Awards were given last night. There were NINE movies nominated for Best Picture. That’s around 25 hours of film. Instead of watching nine films, why not watch nine One Minute Reviews? You may not have seen all the movies nominated, but at least you’ll have a vague opinion about them. (But watch out, people who love Les Mis may not enjoy your company if you agree with me).
Here are the One Minute Reviews of the films nominated for Best Picture:
The Academy can nominate up to ten movies for Best Picture. You’ll notice that there are only nine this year. The one movie that was most obviously NOT nominated was The Master. Even though The Master had three acting nominations and comes from the amazing P.T. Anderson, it’s seen as an attack on Scientology. Scientology, as you probably know, has some influence in Hollywood. My review of The Master, certainly one of the best films of the year, can be found here.
