This week's theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is Oscar winning films. (And if you're not participating in this, you really should be) The only catch was you had to picture winners from the Best Picture, Best Animated Feature, or Best Foreign Film categories. I decided to choose one from each. Here are my favorites:
1) American Beauty
I'm not sure if I'll ever love another movie as much as I love this one. It's been my favorite for years.
2) Life is Beautiful
I realized when going through the winners that my favorite foreign films rarely win. This film is my favorite of all the winners. (From the films I've seen, of course) It's brilliant.
I think this is Pixar's best work, and it's the first time that I can recall watching an animated feature and thinking to myself: "Wow, we have come so far with animation." This is gorgeous.
