When you watch the Oscars this year, pay attention to Best Documentary. I saw Trouble the Water last year at a special screening, and it was one of the most touching and thought provoking movies I have ever seen. Everybody should see this film. It explores race, poverty, government, family and love, media – everything – from the eyes of Katrina survivors.
Literally, from their eyes. Most of it is first-hand footage. Watch it.
And am I the ony one who was far from impressed by Benjamin Button? Aside from Taraji, I was thoroughly disappointed. Batman should replace the Best Pic nomination, but hopefully Slumdog wins anyway.
