    Best cinematography win is sealed for this film. I also like to point out that Malick's films have mainly best cinematography nominations. Like @narrator said he is a more of a artistic director and I love that

      I thought Valhalla Rising was a great flick myself and that Refn did a solid job directing it. His best film to date imo, though I also enjoyed Bronson & Pusher.

        @dan1 I'm a good judge of talent, lol. Really, though, it is one of this year's frontrunners as far as the Academy is concerned. There's been nothing else this year I can honestly look at and say I could see it being nominated. Even though I've yet to see this movie, I can honestly look at it and say I can definitely see it as potential Oscar bait.

          @thedude-abides I think you're giving it way too much credit beforehand, but you could be right. The Academy does go for this artsy stuff.

            @dan1 You know I'm with you on all of that. We've been the prime opponents of this film since it was announced, lol. But, it's a sure-fire bet for a Best Picture nomination, a cinematography nomination, and maybe a couple of best actor noms. I try to stay on top of films that generate a lot of Oscar buzz so that when award season rolls around I've seen most everything.

              @daveactor7 OF COURSE!! Those will probably be the only 2 things worth seeing this for.

                Agreed. Refn's Valhalla Rising is a prime example of "getting lost" in their overall artistic goal, and sacrificing pacing and coherent story telling for it.

                  @narrator I like that, how you described his directing style. He does get lost in his own messages. I'd add to that and say Spike Lee and Refn can get like that with their films, as well.

                    @dan1. Well, while his works are usually cutty and very general, I do at least enjoy his un-pretentious, yet artistic approach to his films. He just gets lost in it all ,and I hope that's not the case here. Also, I don't think the film will be so much a celebration of life, but rather an appreciation for it, with all its faults, difficulties, and beauty and simplicities. Again this'll be a hard topic for Malick to tackle, as he does get lost in an often times generalized and uncoordinated plot.

                        @daveactor7@thedude-abides While those 2 things will probably make the movie semi redeemable, I can't get over how unabashedly cornball this movie feels to me. The whole 'celebration of life' thing seems dull. Maybe I'm letting my distaste for his previous work influence my reactions, but if I haven't liked anything this cheese master has done yet, chances are I won't like this either.

                        To be entirely fair though, I'll honestly give it a shot on Netflix one day. Maybe I'll find something more I'll find agreeable this time around. Won't hold my breath.
