Why do people like the Everything movie so much?
It feels very new. Itís idiosyncratic and made by a younger generation of filmmakers and obvious means a lot to the LGBT and Asian communities. It is impressive from an acting, writing, visual and sound effect standpoint. It checks a lot of boxes.

It was not my favorite film of the year (that would be TŠr of the nominees and Close out of all films), but I thought it quite good. I will say itís rise to winning all these awards seems organic and genuinely reflecting that subset of people who have real passion for it, unlike last yearís CODA campaign which was an abomination.

I tried watching it, twice. Painfulx2.

I totally get that. It is not a film that was made for me. I doubt Iíd watch it again soon. That said, I also respect it is good in many ways.

Itís like not liking hockey but respecting that Alexander Ovechkin is good at a thing you donít like, if that makes sense.

All Quiet On The Western Front is the maddening film of this year for me. Itís going to wrack up all these technical awards (and fairly, itís gorgeous and a technical marvel) despite being a plodding boring script poorly acted.

I had it fourth ahead of only Argentina 1985 (sorry Hutch) in my Best International Feature ballot. Close and EO were INCREDIBLE.
