This month everyone is featuring their Best Of lists. We’ll be posting Patterson Hood’s “Best Of” lists over the next few days. In case you missed it, see Best of Music. Today we have Best Of Movies!
My favorite film of the year (by far) is
Beasts of the Southern Wild.
Its star Quvenzhane Wallis should win Best Actress.
Best Director should be Benh Zeitlin for Beasts of the Southern Wild who broke the three golden rules of filmmaking (no kids, animals or water) and made a true work of art.
Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln) with Joaquin Phoenix a close runner up for The Master.
The Master (Paul Thomas Anderson), Lincoln (Steven Spielberg),
Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson)
looking forward to Django Unchained (Quintin Tarantino)
Make SURE to catch Patterson with The Downtown Rumblers in Nashville Dec. 13 & 14 – it will be a whole bunch of fun! As always, tickets for this year’s New Years Shows at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC and the DBT Homecoming Shows at the 40 Watt in January are going fast, so get yours NOW!
