It was definitely award worthy with the intense acting and of course the controversy (what award winning movie doesn't have controversy?) but it doesn't make you leave saying, "Wow, that was a great film." It makes you leave saying, "hmmm, that was...hmmm." I respect the movie for what it was and the art of the film but it made me feel sad and scared and DISTURBED! Really that is all that I will say because I cannot discuss it without giving to much away but that is my little review. I'm not saying that it was a bad movie, I think it is very worthy of any acclaim, it was just not what I thought it was about. As a matter of fact, a lot of big movies these days are keeping the suspense so that you will go see it and then they shock you in the theatre. Good tactic I guess.
P.S. I will say that Leo was "so pretty" in this movie :)
