    I'll be catching something tonight in my bid to prep myself for the upcoming awards. They are typically very slow to get as many of the potential award winners here, so I'm sort of in a privileged position.

    My choices basically come down to:
    21 Grams
    Elephant
    House of Sand and Fog
    In America

    Strangely enough, I'm largely ambivalent towards all of them and can't really choose what to see. It means I can go into all of them with an open mind. What would you recommend? You have about 3 hours or so before I go.

    I literally just got back from House of Sand and Fog, and I saw In America a couple of weeks ago. I preferred In America, not without the occasional flaw, but definitely a movie I could eventually watch again. Sand and Fog is pretty good, but not one I would want to experience again. That's a nice subjective comparison for you.

    None have been released here but personally I am looking forward to seeing 21 Grams the most. I realise it has had mixed reception but based on the strength of Iñárritu's debut Amores Perros makes the easy choice for me.

    However, since you are preparing yourself for awards season, just go see them all within the next few days and then it won't really matter which one you see tonight. All those films are high priority for me.

    How are you in a privileged position?

    Elephant won an award at Cannes so thats suppose to be very good.
    21 Grams is getting the best reviews of all of them.

    We only really have one art theater, but our local AMCs are hosting several of these. Its just rare to have this many contenders available all at once.
