It’s been a long and trying year since I last touched bases with you, and in that time I have not been able to see nearly as many new releases as usual. Life has a way of interfering, and since changing career paths early last year, I’ve had difficulty finding adequate time to devote to cinematic pursuits.
But as awards season approached, I did my best to catch up with several of the year’s most notable offerings, so that I may speak with at least some authority about this year’s Oscar race.
