YOU GOTTA GIVE 'EM HOPE
I'd like to throw my two cents into the universe regarding this year's Oscar Best Picture: Milk, should and will win, if there's any justice in the universe. (Although the film makes it obvious that justice isn't a constant.)
I cannot imagine Slumdog Millionaire as anywhere near the same level of scope, width and depth as a film like Milk.
And I'm not just saying this because I went to school with the movie's writer and one of its stars.
Best Pictures should be in the way of and even Ben Hur, Schindler's List, West Side Story, Amadeus, The Last Emperor and even Forrest Gump. Can we really look back at 2008 at say Slumdog is the absolute best cinema had to offer?
