FINALLY got around to seeing it. I am actually really into it. I'm loving the fact that all these great crime dramas are popping up from other countries of late. Gomorrah, A Prophet, and now Animal Kingdom. This is by far one of my favorites of the year. The script was great, direction was incredibly tight for a fictional debut.

Pope is one of my favorite "villains" in recent film history, if you can call him that. Though, I don't really know who is a villain in this film, though Pope is the most outward with his villainy. Truly terrifying.

Not since Fredo Corleone have I had sympathy for a character as I did for J. I think every character was incredibly well written, down to Ezra the Lawyer and J's girlfriend.

I've watched it three times in the past week trying to mull it over and see if I was as truly into it as I was. Every time I found it just as enjoyable.

I hope the Oscar campaigning for this film goes well. At the very least, Jacki Weaver deserves Best Supporting Actress. Her part in the last 20 minutes was chilling.

I think she's pretty much a lock, but I am sure Ben Mendelsohn will not even be given a chance. Shame, I think he's the absolute best part of this film.

I agree. He did the psychopathic facial expressions extremely well. The Hawaiian shirts added to the creep factor too.

I agree. I was just making sure you weren't saying she was a lock for a win.

Oh, no. Unfortunately, I don't think she has a fighting chance.

This is my movie of the year, easily. I knew it the second it was over. It played out like a Greek tragedy. I loved everything about it: the characters, the music, the use of slo-mo, etc. Unless Blue Valentine blows me away, this is probably sticking as my #1.

Ben Mendelsohn was so great in this. I hope he has a better role in Killing Them Softly than he had in The Dark Knight Rises.
