I have to say this - and then I hope to Let It Rest.
Last night I went to see The Descendants - for the Third Time.
And It's been working on me ever since.
I've told a couple of People - ya gotta see this.
But why - stidh - do I have to see this Movie?
I'm gonna tell ya that right now - Folks.
The Descendants is right up there with Saving Private Ryan
and The Pianist - as far as Socially Redeeming Movies go.
Because The Descendants is about the Inevitable.
It is about Death.
And Death is something that we all will experience -
Either Before We Die
Or When We Die
After That IT Really Doesn't Matter - Does it?
Now - here is what we all hope will be my Last Words about
~The Director - Alexander Payne - must be a Very Special Person
~The Main Actor - George Clooney - nailed it
~The Boyfriend - Nick Krause - great job big guy
~Alexandra - Shailene Woodley - you did a stunningly beautiful job
~Scottie - Amara Miller - you flip 'em off with the best of 'em
and I don't want to take up any more room but there was no one in this
Amazing and Wonderful - and Certainly Important Movie THAT WAS NOT
JUST REALLY GREAT - including the cinematography - shots of Hawaii.
and ya just had to give the awards to a f-in French Movie - go figure
