Why I had to watch 1917
I don't do crazy things on a Monday but I just came back home late after watching the movie 1917.
It was such an experience that it will be worth a few blogposts.
For one, I only heard about it after it has been Oscar-nominated in the Best Movie category along with a few others, including Parasite. And as I took notice of the media after the nomination, it was touted to be the only strong competitor of Parasite.
I knew then I have to watch it. But I don't like war movies.
About Parasite, I was expecting it to win. I felt that after all the attention it was getting, it has to win Best Movie or the Oscars will have a lot to answer to, for sidelining another excellent but non-English movie.
Yes, I was expecting Parasite to win. But I was also afraid that it might not.
It was then that, war movie or not, I really have to watch 1917 to now decide for myself if Parasite really deserve to win.
Sorry it will have to wait. I will post a review--as soon as I can wrap my head around it.
