[The Constant Gardener]

The housemate rented some more DVDs, so last night I finally got to see The Constant Gardener, which was just a gorgeous film. Fernando Meirelles is one hell of a director, but I have to say that City of God was better. And Rachel Weisz was excellent, but if I had been a voting member I probably would have given that Oscar to Michelle Williams. Well, maybe not. I didn’t see two of the nominees after all. Not that that stops many of the voters.

(Hrm. The bitterness, I see, has not yet passed.)

ANYWAY. The Constant Gardener. Good stuff. Better corruption film than some of the others that got more press this year, and also, I’d dare say, better film on race as well. Beautifully filmed & acted, strikingly edited.
