How Oscar couldn't find a place at the table for Peter Weir's astonishing The Way Back is fucking beyond me. Amazing, inspirational stuff. Makes you really appreciate life. It's a movie that sticks to the ribs. Lots more tomorrow on this captivating but dark story of human endurance. How it's not up for picture, director, and cinematography is baffling. If I were Weir I'd be pissed.
