Sam and Peter: I fell asleep and had to go back and watch what I'd missed.

I thought I'd like the film as I found the whole theatre aspect of the story quite interesting and I like Uncle Vanya. But everything was on the same level. I had this complaint about Parallel Mothers, too. It felt like everyone was talking in the same monotone throughout the whole film. It became like white noise to me. White noise is used to help people sleep. And I did.

Consequently, The Power of the Dog should win BP, but CODA might pull a Green Book "feel good" BP award.

Yes, heaven forbid people should feel good about a movie they're voting for.

This is the year's best film, hands down. It will win the international award at the Oscars, but not BP because Hollywood won't repeat the Parasite phenomenon. Consequently, The Power of the Dog should win BP, but CODA might pull a Green Book "feel good" BP award.
For me, a toss up between The French Dispatch and Drive My Car. I went back and saw both twice, theatrically. That doesn't happen often.
