How it would all look if I selected the nominees and winners each year!
The Tragedy of Macbeth
And the Dickie Award goes to...
Joel Coen, The Tragedy of Macbeth
Man, so hard to not go with Mike Mills, who directed my clear favorite of the year. Or Miranda, who directed one of the most visually dynamic and meta-theatrical films I've seen in a long time! (Though I'm giving it screenplay, as so much of that divine work was established on the page.)
But a) I like to spread the wealth :), and b) Tragedy was SO well composed visually - I honestly think it will stand the test of time tremendously, and bear comparison to age-old classics by the likes of Bergman and Kurosawa. I so appreciate how the visual palate and tone functioned in conjunction with each other, and this is all on account of him. Check it out if you haven't!!!
