Jackson Fleming’s review published on Letterboxd:
CHECK OUT MY TOP 10 FILMS OF 2015, TOP 15 SUPPORTING ACTRESS PERFORMANCES OF THE DECADE, TOP 15 LEADING ACTOR PERFORMANCES OF THE DECADE(👍)
One of the best films ever made.
I’m like half way into my next movie, when I totally forgot to log this.
This should’ve been Eddie Redmayne’s second Oscar. His performance in this film is so life changing. Every piece of dialogue that comes out of his mouth in this film, is said with such emotion, and such stone cold seriousness, that he’s just PERFECTION!!!!!!
Alicia Vikander easily gives one of the best supporting performances of the decade, for me she is #15, but she deserved every single inch of that Oscar win, and was one of the most deserving wins of the decade. The emotion that goes through her character in the events of this film are so breathtaking, and a whole lot of “WTF” moments, but Vikander was so set on this character, I just loved what she did with it. And I agree wit ha lot of people that she is a lead, but she simply wouldn’t have an Oscar if they put her in lead, so I sort of understand why they made the decision to win her for supporting.
This was genuinely snubbed for 3 categories it EASILY should’ve gotten:
This film should’ve been the front runners for those 3 categories. I would have to look and see who won Score, and Cinematography that year, but they probably should’ve won. (If you know what won those 2 categories, tell me in the comments)
Just a gorgeous film, with some BEAUTIFUL, PHENOMENAL, BREATHTAKING, performances.
Check it out if you haven’t!!!!
