The Way of the Future
Finally saw The Aviator over the weekend, and I must say it was better than I had expected, and I found the film to easily be the best Scorsese picture since Casino. The performances were outstanding (especially the chameleonic Blanchett as Katherine Hepburn who blatantly stole the show from DiCaprio.) The pacing of the film was excellent (which I find Scorsese sometimes has problems with.) I would highly recommend the film, especially since I think it is going to win a bunch of awards come February 27th. Frustratingly, during the inevitable break-up sequence between Hughes and Hepburn a lady sitting a few seats down from us decided to un-wrap and eat the loudest snack-food you could imagine, nearly destroying the emotion of the scene. And then two eastern European ladies sitting directly behind us just started having a conversation during the CLIMACTIC SCENE. The very last shots of the film, a very dark and introspective moment and they just start yammering away in their full-on normal voice. We were appalled…
