    Perhaps that's indicative of the dearth of fine movies we used to be able to see with regularity. It appears those days are long gone, unfortunately.
    I've got to say I thought "Manchester by the Sea" was a totally solid film for what it was, a straight forward drama, what else do people expect? I mean even back in the golden age of films there still was tons of crap. Truly great films are few and far between and even though MbtS wasn't in the pantheon of the greatest films of all time, it was still a good film.

    Moonlight on the other hand, while well made was hardly best picture material and the fact it one fits with the academy's unspoken policy of awarding things for political reasons.

    'Nise: The Heart of Madness', a Brazilian film, portraying the care of people with schizophrenia in 1950s Rio. It's based on a true story and despite its subject matter is surprisingly uplifting. Far better than 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', imho. Currently on Netflix UK.

    Have you read the novel (Cuckoo's Nest)? In my opinion, the movie version barely scratches the surface of it and makes far too many important changes. Some things are better read and not seen!

    This was nauseatingly violent and ultimately purposeless. (I guess the message is don't **** off psychotic neo-Nazos...). Patrick Stewart must have lost a bet to waste his time on this loser, although his performance was quite chilling.

    No, he's Anton Yelchin, who was killed when his car crushed him against his fence last year.

    Yes, that's the guy, tragic but as we know, no-one knows when "that" day will be ( thank goodness)

    The DVD has interesting supporting features, including the Spanish Version, shot on the same sets after the regular crew was done for the day. (It is argued that many of the shots in the Spanish version are better, but their Dracula has none of Legosi's charisma. The Spanish female lead, Lupita Tovar, died just last year at the age of 106. Carla Lemmle, who speaks the first words in the English version, also died a few years ago, at 104. Maybe a little of Dracula wore off on them.) I also recommend Kevin Brownlow's documentary Universal Horror, about the early Universal horror films.

    Personally speaking the direction of this movie was spectacular, although I do agree that it was nauseatingly violent. This was the second film of Jeremy Saulnier who made the indie hit "Blue Ruin" (made through kickstart), he said he wanted to make it before his career got to far and the studio exec.s wouldn't let him do something this dark. Considering it was made for less than five million dollars with all the talent involved (which by the way Patrick Stewart said he did the movie because reading the script scared the s*^% out of him and that had never happened to him before) is very impressive.

    I understand what you mean though it is definitely not a film I want to re-watch any time soon, incredibly graphic but I wouldn't say tasteless. Having said this I urge you to check out Blue Ruin, which for a directorial debut on a shoe-string budget, is an astounding movie and one that I have watched several times. A far better film than Green Room.
