leave a comment »

The Aviator image Martin Scorsese directs this Best Picture nominee about Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio), who turned a small fortune into a massive one by producing such classics as Hell’s Angels, The Front Page, Flying Leathernecks and Scarface. He simultaneously branched into and transformed industry after industry, including aviation. Winner of five Oscars, including Best Cinematography, Art Direction and Supporting Actress (Cate Blanchett).

Geoff’s Comments: I really enjoyed this, and was pleasantly surprised. Based on the previews I’d seen when it was first released, I was expecting something targeted towards a younger audience, and less ‘intelligent’ then this turned out to be. It’s definitely worth seeing. Great performances and visuals, excellent story telling and drama, and sadly tragic regarding an illness that, today, would be manageable.
