All of the Oscar prediction sites say this will win Best Picture. It's because the insiders love movies like The Player, Get Shorty and Bowfinger. I didn't like any of those movies, and I don't like this one. It's just plain boring, and my hunch is that people who love it are movie industry lovers with a romantic view of the industry. Berenice Bejo is very appealing, and the dog provides some entertaining moments. I acknowledge that acting without speaking is an art. I guess it's just not one I appreciate.
