It’s time again for my 100% correct ranking of this year’s Oscar best picture nominees:

  1. Oppenheimer
  2. Anatomy of a Fall
  3. The Zone of Interest
  4. Killers of the Flower Moon
  5. Past Lives
  6. Poor Things
  7. Barbie
  8. American Fiction
  9. The Holdovers
  10. Maestro

Finished in March:

The Marvels: equal parts nonsensical and weird. Weird is good. Nonsensical is not. At least it was under two hours

Dune: Part 2: Sometimes movies transport us to places that just aren’t possible. Other times they shine a light on us that we couldn’t normally see. And then there are times they do both and they transcend

Dune Part 1: Rewatched before our showing of Part 2 on Friday– there was a LOT of this movie that I’d forgotten in the haze of COVID.

As he did with Arrival, Villeneuve does a superb job of tying grand epics to the personal.

The Holdovers: There are periods of the year where time gets a little hazy. We need those times to find meaning

Killers of the Flower Moon: …it’s the inevitability of it all. There were people to be exploited, so they were.
