was competent, but I don't understand why it has been getting so much praise. I feel the same about the performances -- good, but not worthy of being singled out.
I'm surprised that The Descendants
is on here, too. It was okay, but not nearly as good as Payne's previous effort, Sideways
The absence of We Need To Talk About Kevin
on this list is shameful, but at least The Tree of Life
was recognized (though I doubt something so experimental will win).
