I want to see the pictures and performances nominated for awards this year. So I rented Eastern Promises. I spent a good deal of the movie with my hands over my eyes. No Country for Old Men seems to be at about the same level. As does Sweeny Todd. Seems like the only movie I won’t have to sit through with my hands over my eyes is Juno. Does this mean I’m too old to be relevant? Too old to appreciate great performances squeezed into bloodied scenes of extreme grossness? Am I the only one who wishes that filmmakers would leave SOMETHING, ANYTHING, to the imagination?
