Viewing Journal: 1/8/2015






10) SELMA
(2014 dir. Ava DuVernay) Date Seen: January 8 2015

Though I didn't like Oyelowo's performance as much as I did Jeffrey Wright's in BOYCOTT (2001), this is a much more handsome & smartly constructed film about Dr. King than that was. And it's still an excellent character performance by Oyelowo. This whole ensemble is simply beautiful. 2014 was a decent year for biographical pics.

Added retroactively to my Best Films of 2014!





Also,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVID BOWIE!
