even better than i remembered. the acting is great, the characters are well drawn and rich, the script is witty and funny. cinematically it’s fresh and exciting to watch. midnight cowboy beat it out for best picture and that’s understandable since it’s just as good and has more weight to it. the lack of acting nominations is regrettable. i haven’t seen true grit, but from what i understand wayne won mostly because he hadn’t won before. it did win for best screenplay, song, music, and cinematography though.
overall just a great piece of work top to bottom. it gets a bit slow in parts, but that’s really the only negative thing that i can say about it.
