REPLAY: 2011 Oscar Foreign Language Films

THE FINAL FIVE:

Hors-la-loi (Outside the Law)

Politics and violence are just stupid zero-sum games.

My Rating: 6/10

 

 

 

Kynodontas (Dogtooth)

Dog owners (parents) should see this movie.

My Rating: 7/10

 

 

 

 

Biutiful

Story of people who see the true horrible face of this thing we called life.

My Rating: 8/10

 

 

 

 

Incendies

Prejudice and hatred are good at nothing except incite wars, kill people, and separate mothers from their children forever.

My Rating: 8/10

 

 

Hævnen (In a Better World)

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Yeah right. Just make sure that you and your loved ones don’t end up blind, or dead, first.

My Rating: 8/10

 

SHOULD BE IN THE FINAL FIVE:

Kokuhaku (Confessions)

An ultra-maniacal view on how to ‘educate a problem child’.

My Rating: 7/10

 

 

 

Who’d I like to win:

Filmwise, Haevnen deserves the win. Personally, I would like a bold, provocative, one of a kind weirdo movie like Dogtooth to grab the prize. But hey, get real. This is Oscar.

Now: WHO’D YOU LIKE TO WIN?
