2015 Best Picture Nominees

(In order of how much I liked them)

Whiplash

This edge of your seat thrill-ride is about a Jazz drummer. You read that right. This film about a student at a jazz conservatory manages to take you through a series of emotions and leave you breathless from the intensity.

Selma

Based on a true story. A masterfully directed film that transcends its “biopic” designation.                      Read full review >>

Birdman

The film lover’s film. Its how-did-they-do-that camerawork, electric performances and whirlwind storytelling will all be discussed and disected for years to come.
