This Month’s Genre…
This month’s genre is, “The Best of 2013 American Cinema (continued)”
This January, February, and March Reel Club will take on some of the strongest and most celebrated American films of 2013. Award season is always an exciting time…after all, the award shows are, perhaps, some of Hollywood’s greatest films!
That aside, many of the films Mr. Oscar pays attention to come from some of the most creative and established visionaries in American filmmaking, namely Woody Allen and the Coen brothers in this year’s season.
January will look at Prisoners, Philomena, August: Osage County, and Inside Llewyn Davis.
February will take on Captain Phillips, Blue Jasmine, Dallas Buyers Club, and All is Lost.
March will discover Nebraska, Gravity, Frozen, American Hustle, and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Regardless of whom wins gold for these movies, these films are exemplars of what mainstream American cinema has to offer, and, as a result, moviegoers are the real winners, with smart, sometimes funny, and always emotionally powerful films to enjoy.
