I saw Night and Fog in a college course on the Holocaust. It was pretty strong stuff, to say the least. Never got around to Shoah.

Watch SHOAH. It is 9.5 hours long. But  you can watch it in several parts  at different times.

Be prepared to stop and cry and not be able to sleep normally without sleeping pills for some time afterward.

Btw It was all filmed from the late 70's to early 80's. No actual Holocaust footage. But horrifying nonetheless

It's just something that's impossible to wrap your brain around no matter how hard you try

Denzel Washington won the Cecil B. Demille award.

Is there some sort of irony, one of the only two blacks who ever won a Best Actor Oscar now wins an award named for a notoriously "America First" filmmaker? Oh, I forgot, Demille was only anti-European; we don't know what he felt about blacks   ;)

I'm surprised by The Revenant's Best Picture win, all the smart money had been on Spotlight. We'll see if that carries over to the Oscars.

I saw SPOTLIGHT Monday night. Not great. I give it like a 7/10, decent, but not nearly as high as its rating on imdb. I know, I know, imdb is meaningless.

I did not like Mark Ruffalo. Maybe he is accurately imitating the guy He is portraying with the way he speaks/acts. I don't know, but I didn't like him.

Michael Keaton is very good, as is Stanley Tucci. And the woman, what's her name? She is very good, too.

I often have a hard time  explaining why I did not love a movie; I don't I have the gift of words that Some of y'all have. i will try my best to explain: This movie, IMO, suffers from just sorta being too much documentary and too little drama. ( maybe partially because we all sorta know the story?)  I just felt like there's lots of talking among the newspaper people stuff, finding out the truth but is just not great fun to WATCH; I guess the director should br blamed?

I don't recall my exact rating on ALL THE PRESIDENTS MEN,  which I guess is a similar concept, but I think I rated it a 7.5 or eight out of 10. in other words, probably a little lower than most people.

To me SPOTLIGHT just seemed like a bunch of talking. Some directors can stage a scene that it is just great fun to watch. This is not. A talking-based movie can still be very enjoyable perhaps if the story is amazing, it has great dialogue or absolutely spectacular performances, but I wouldn't say this movie has any of that though there are some solid performances as mentioned above. I did not like Ruffalo in ZODIAC, but that is for a different reason: not that he was bad, but because he just doesn't have that spectacular IT that I would expect from the real-life police chief whom BULLITT and DIRTY HARRY were based on.


Now, 7/10 is a decent rating. It is certainly not a bad movie. But my expectations were higher, hence I end up talking mostly about what I did not love.

To try to summarize my rambling: some solid performances, story is decent nothing great, but a lot of talkig like making a documentary about the TRUTH rather than a great drama. I guess that the "people seeking the truth" movie doesn't interest me much. I did love JFK, though that had the spectacular direction and editing and all that (and had very little to do with truth  ;)
SPOTLIGHT did not really have a great catch, a great AHA moment, no great plot twist or tension. Just sort of very plain.

I have not seen many of the movies that are expected to be considered for Best Picture of 2015, but I cannot imagine SPOTLIGHT being the best movie of any year. Ditto for THE BIG SHORT. Both decent, but disappointing based on expectations. And btw, Both had a main character with ticks and weird stuff that perhaps is imitating the real-life character upon which it is based but I found irritating (Steve Carrell and Mark Ruffalo).

By the way, I saw the movie at 8 pm on a Monday night in Union Square, and the theater was packed. Somehow i didn't expect such a big crowd on a cold weeknight.  I wonder if the fact that the Golden GlobesAwards was held the night before, perhaps causes a spike in theater attendance. I know that for me, because i was watching and discussing the Golden Globes, it certainly made me think, Hey, I should go see a movie soon. I wonder if the days immediately following award shows often see an uptick in theater attendance?

I saw Spotlight the last week of November and my theater was packed, too. To be fair, it was a rainy Saturday and that probably drove lots of people inside. It wouldn't seem like a movie to attract a big audience.

I agree with you about Ruffalo. His character was much more flamboyant and expressive than the rest of the cast, and stands out in a distracting way. Keaton, Rachel McAdams and the others got by with low-key performances, not drawing attention to themselves. Stanley Tucci was my favorite performance, though.
