With a viewing of The New World today, I declare my Oscar Project for 2005 complete!! I don't have access to the foreign, documentary or short films so I'm happy having seen all 30 feature film nominees!!!
This last one was a little tough. The New World is nominated for an Oscar in cinematography, and it is well deserved. The rest of the film is a mess. The acting is fair, the editing awful (almost no continuity) and very little plot. This film was re-edited after it was first released, and I am grateful I did not have to sit through a longer version. I will say that Q'Orinanka Kilcher, Collin Farrell, Christian Bale and Christopher Plummer were fine, but it was not enough to salvage this film.
