The best film I've seen all year. Maybe the best film I've seen . . .ever.
Here's a little more:
- This film should be shown to film school students as an example of how to make a truly great film.
- Great story. Great acting. Great directing. Great unseen special effects. Great music. Great drama. Great everything.
- Oscar-worthy performances by Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Matt Damon, and maybe even Josh Brolin. I expect at least the first three to be nominated - and at least the first two to win.
- No John Wayne/Jeff Bridges comparisons. These are two different films. The are both great westerns.
- I'm still singing "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" in my head.
I think I want to see this one again. And again.
