LA bestowed the Best Picture to LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA while NY chose UNITED 93. From all those critics awards, the following films emerge as potential Oscar contenders:
LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA
LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
Although I haven't seen it, I'm rooting for LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA just because I'm a huge fan of Clint-san. It's amazing how he keeps getting better and better. If only I could pick his brain. Maybe that time will come. Meanwhile, I learn plenty from his movies and bits of interviews from him.
At a recent screening of the film in New York, he was quoted saying, "War is very futile no matter how much you color it.” Thank you, sir.
