“Amour” – Michael Haneke: No. (I’m not going to stop writing no next to this film title.)
“Beasts of the Southern Wild” – Benh Zeitlin: Have yet to see it.
“Life of Pi” – Ang Lee: meh. This was less about the directing and more about the visual aspects of the film which came from the acting, special effects, set design… the way I see it.
“Lincoln” – Steven Spielberg: no. lol. I’m being so mean. The part that I liked about it though was how Spielberg laid the actors out on the set– there were so many of them. But I didn’t like how many parts were filmed, which kind of ruined it for me.
