article on Michael Fassbender yesterday. Very, very lovely indeed. He's probably thinking about why some critics aren't liking The Counselor. Boo! Well, forget them, but I'm sure I'll like the movie, and I hope you guys enjoy it too! Meanwhile, I want to bring to your attention an absolutely remarkable, enlightening, historical essay film review of 12 Years a Slave by Wesley Morris, the 2012 Pulitzer Prize winning criticism writer for The Boston Globe.
If Mr. Morris' essay does not move you to run and see 12 Years, and if his essay does not all but guarantee with 100% certainty that TYAS is the film that will win the Best Picture Oscar, I don't know what will. I've never been so moved by a review like this ever before... and probably never will again.
TGiFassy to those of you in parts of the country that have one or both Michael Fassbender films to watch this weekend! I got my box of Junior Mints all set for my Saturday showing of The Counselor!
