Couldn’t be anything more opposite from Hobo with a Shotgun than this. My first time seeing it. I just know it has a reputation as a controversial choice for a Best Picture Academy Award. Looking at the other nominees there was a lot of other cheesy feel good Oscar movies so at least they were consistent with their picks. No Do the Right Thing though? When Harry Met Sally? Crimes & Misdemeanors? Kinda crazy. This is one of those I didn’t dislike it movies it just doesn’t really interest me though. Maybe I am just too young to fully appreciate it? I don’t know. Old white person and old black person become friends. It was very stagey and the acting felt like it belonged on a stage and not in a movie. Yes I am aware it is based on a play. Everything about it just felt so short to me.
