Director: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Release: January 2016
If this isn’t one of the 10 best movies of the last 10 years I’ll eat my hat, or whatever gross hat someone in this movie wore during filming, whichever I can find first. To say that this film is an Oscar Alert is an understatement; it has just become the Best Picture frontrunner. With a director like Inarritu (21 Grams, Babel, Birdman) and a cast like this (DiCaprio, Hardy, Gleeson) there is nothing this film can’t be, including amazing beyond belief. I’m sure I’m setting my expectations too high, but by the time I see it in December or January I’ll have calmed down enough to appreciate it for whatever is happens to be.
