You are right it has been a good year for movies.  I really enjoyed this film very much and glad I saw it if only for DDL's performance that should win Best Actor hands down.  I certainly see a comaprison to Citizen Kane.  DDL's need to control everything and everyone leads to his slipping into madness.  However, I doubt I'd ever sit through the whole movie ever again.

"No Country" on the other hand has the best overall cast and story.  The Cohen Brothers get West Texas and Texan right for the late 70s and early 80s.  Javier Bardem is the nastiest bad guy to come along in a while and is the undisputed Best Supporting Actor.

I left both movies impressed and was thinking and talking about both of them for days afterward.
