quote:A distraction indeed, from Winona Ryder's weak, whiny character. Some people referred to it as 'stealing the show', and the Oscar people certainly agreed.
I meant a distraction from the story. Her performance was like one member of a choir singing loudly and slightly off-key; it inhibited the overall effect of presenting the art. As for the Oscar win, I think Academy awards are primarily a measurement of the zeitgeist and not of cinematic quality. Reference Titanic, Forrest Gump, Chicago, ...
I knew what you meant. I was m.a.k.i.n.g. .a. .j.o.k.e. I'll be surprised if you enjoy A Mighty Heart. Clearly your mind is firmly made up about her and anything she does.
And let me guess...you love European films and only watch alternative films and listen to independent music artists.
