These Rare Celebrity Audition Tapes Are Pretty Awesome
I just saw Boyhood this weekend. In the film you follow a boy for 12 years of his life. This is not a documentary but a fictional film made over 12 years. Sounds like a gimmic (which it is) but it works so well. It has the feeling of watching a family actually grow over a decade. All the little changes in their lives. Every person who watches it can identify with many moments that probably mirror their own lives growing up.
One aspect that really stuck with me were 2-3 moments where you felt like something tragic or terrible was about to happen but then nothing did… Life just went on. Nothing STOPPED the lives of the characters. I think a big part of that is that we’re all conditioned now with TV and FILM to expect HORRIBLE things to happen in films. We expect someone to die, to be abused, to be raped, to be dismembered, etc… But reality doesn’t always have these dramatic moments. Most of the time nothing happens. This film portrays the normality of life better than most I’ve ever seen. It’s the ANTI Forest Gump.
I saw it while it’s still in very limited release and every showing was PACKED/SOLD OUT. You will be seeing this film get a wide release and LOTS of Oscar talk for sure. Keep an eye out for it and definitely check it out!

Exactly what kind of Native American tribe is this suppose to be?
The subtitles on your foreign bad guys aren’t what they’re actually saying.
That ancient text very conveniently rhymes when you translate it into English.
This tank model wasn’t even out by this stage of the war! Please, do your research. Try Germany, 2 years later. The thingamajigs are so un-gadgety and clearly false.
(a) That is NOT a Roman cavalry saddle and (b) THE ROMANS WEREN’T EVEN THERE.
Not one of the actors has been told how to pronounce “kilometer” correctly. Also, don’t start with me about “trillions of parsecs”, FFS. You wouldn’t know even one if it bit you in the ass, and merely avoiding the Kessel Run Error is not enough.
Solar eclipses do not happen during a full moon!
But the Strausses were last seen embracing on deck, not in their cabin.
GPOY for historically inaccurate as well…
My answer is always Stanley Kubrick both for style and storytelling.
