“I saw Children of Men yesterday. Its not just great — it’s holy shit great. With clearly the most imaginative and inspired cinematography since Seven (in terms of the innovation of the work, which, in this case, was how well the camera moves). This is easily the best film of the year. Nothing comes close. It got shut out of the Oscar race because of a horrible Oscar campaign, or lack of one.” — a prominent feature film director who sometimes passes along this and that thought, often on Sunday mornings.
