sort by best latest
My feelings exactly! Even after 3 hours, I wanted it to continue. Yes, it had a few faults, but it is a genre defining film and one that will have longevity. One of my top 5, as well.
I can see why the Academy frowned on Best Director, because of the plot holes and bad sound editing. If it had spent a little more time in pre and post production, it could have been stellar. I was shocked that it didn't get best Cinematography.
