Here we go again! I don’t think I’ve ever been so aware of an Oscar season before while having technically no interest in it. I’m rooting for my favourites and hope that some history is made but otherwise it’s a strange award season. It’s hard to be excited after a year we’ve had… what’s the point even. Anyway, today I’m looking at five movies nominated for the Film Editing Oscar. While editing is an essential part of film making, I’m not very well versed with this technical side. Though I can tell when the editing seamlessly tells a story that not only surprises but also excites you. There are a few here that have that type of film editing… at least for me.
Don’t let the rating of the film discourage you from seeing it. The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a wonderfully strange and worthy cinematic experience. It’s just that with the rating falling between 3 and 4, I had to make a decision. Eventually I decided that since the cinematography outshines the script, The Killing of a Sacred Deer has room to grow.
Being with somebody is the only acceptable way of being for society. But you also have to be compatible – if your partner gets nosebleeds, and you get nosebleeds, you are compatible. If you are alone, you will be turned into an animal. If you are afraid to become an animal, and run away, you become a loner. People, who are alone but not yet turned into animals, can hunt the loners and gain extra days as people to find their compatible partner. Some people would do anything to not be turned into an animal.
