Karger pulling for “Clayton”

    Haven’t seen ATONEMENT so can’t comment yet, but very much looking forward to it. CLAYTON was a terrific movie but it’s not best picture material. Still, if it got nominated, I wouldn’t be pissed. I loved NO COUNTRY and I do think it has a shot at a nomination but it will be out of respect to the Coens…no chance it will win. I won’t be surprised (or upset) if AMERICAN GANGSTER gets a nom (or wins). Ridley is waaay overdue. I know that there is no chance in hell that JESSE JAMES and ZODIAC will be up for the big enchilada so that frustrates me; I’m hoping that INTO THE WILD sneaks in there, but it being a Penn film and the liberal leanings of the main character and the message of the film itself might be too much for the old farts in the academy.
