I think this is the first time in the history of the Oscar's that yours truly has seen 3 out of 5 Best Picture nominations. And...and...I was already planning to see the other two anyway...Munich and Good Evening and Good Night. I suppose one could chalk this up to an increase in my movie watching...but I don't think that's it. I think it's because for the first time in quite sometime the Oscars actually nominated some fine, fine cinema.
Capote...good Philip Seymour Hoffman...very good
Brokeback Mountain...very good
