LUMPENPROLETARIAT—With the burgeoning complaints against the all-white 2016 Oscars, family, friends, and colleagues have been discussing which movies may have actually been snubbed by the nearly all-white, and all-male, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). Of course, this requires watching as many of the 2016 Oscar-nominated, and not nominated, contenders as possible.
This worthy contender, with the most nominations, a dozen nominations, is directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, a Mexican film director, producer, screenwriter, and former composer. This is a very good film, an epic western, which updates the cartoonish cowboys and indians films of yore with hyper-realistic cinematography and visual effects. Director Alejandro G. Iñárritu offers an updated take on the classic clash of civilisations narrative.
