The first half really had me, and though the second one isn't as great, I still thought this was pretty good.
At first I thought that this would continue the typical Best Picture trend of being undeserving, but I think this film's win is well warranted. Granted, it's not Mulholland Drive or Royal Tenenbaums, but it's a damn good film.
Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly are marvelous here. Jennifer is also such a pretty lady, ugh.
A very satisfying film.
