Since we're talking about films of the 2010's, I really enjoyed The Revenant. I have no issue with Spotlight winning Best Picture at the Oscars, but I thought Leo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy were absolutely fantastic, and it was some of the most beautiful cinematography I've seen on screen. Yes, the plot was simple, but that is often effective in westerns or wilderness-westerns, which is basically what this was. (Think of how simple Open Range was in terms of the plot, a film I thought was great.)

Speaking of The Revenant (which I quite liked), I find it interesting how another one of IƱarritu's highly touted films, Birdman, was oddly omitted from that list. Personally, I liked it. I thought that the whole one-take gag was pretty hip, and Keaton probably should've won best actor during its award season. But I don't think that film's aged too well since it came out in 2014, and I do feel it was a tad overhyped. Watching it now, it just comes across as a bit hollow and gimmicky, sort of like a poor man's All That Jazz. Decent 7/10 movie for me. IƱarritu's tour-de-force will always be Amores Perros.

I might be an early advocate of High Life as the best film of this decade. Maybe.

I'll try to explain as best as I can. Sometimes I like strange or mind-bending movies, and sometimes I don't. I just didn't like it, didn't find it to be a satisfying experience. Didn't love the shooting style (where it was almost like the whole movie was one long continuous scene), though I know some will say the total opposite. And while I did think Michael Keaton's performance was great, I find Emma Stone to be overrated, and that big monologue where she tears into her father I found to be, how can I say this, overwrought and too preachy. As if it's not something an actual person would say, but something that a screenwriter would write if they were pontificating.

I agree with this assessment of Birdman, but I still enjoyed it for Keaton's performance.

My most anticipated movie of the year. Also look forward to getting the soundtrack. QT always has a knack for sniffing out those great, obscure tunes that nobody remembers.

"The Turin Horse" is a masterpiece. I've been trying to get to the last few movies on that best of 2010s list that I haven't seen. I finally saw this the other day. It is certainly one of the best movies of the last decade. If you are not familiar with Bela Tarr, his films can be challenging. However, if you are not intimidated by austere and sparse films, then, viewing "The Turin Horse" will be a very enriching experience.
