Rounding Out 2013, Part 2

I have added the following reviews:

Big Bad Wolves

Big Bad Wolves

Grade: B+

The Great Beauty

The Great Beauty

Grade: C+

Omar

omar

Grade: B

The latter two are nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, which means I have now seen four of the five nominees. As I still haven’t seen The Missing Picture, I am not quite ready to declare The Hunt the deserved victor. But I will say the Academy should have nominated Wadjda.

Additionally, I have added a review to the Yesteryear section:

M (1931)

M

Grade: A

Originally viewed as part of Alex Raphael’s Foreign Favourites Series, M is some of the best psychological filmmaking I have ever seen and thereby receives my highest recommendation. As does Alex’s blog, which is filled with compelling photography, quotes of the day, movie and book reviews, and more (including one of the most scintillating comments section in the blogosphere).
