    What do YOU think of this Best Picture winner? Do you like, love or loathe it? Do you think it deserve all of its Oscar wins?

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Love It. I really like it a lot. With that said, Fargo definitely should’ve won Best Picture and Best Director.

    I don’t mind it’s Oscar wins and tbh it’s the film that gave Juliette Binoche her award so I can’t complain.

    LOVE it! It’s a great romance film and an epic. It surely deserved all of its Oscars. I would’ve swapped the categories of KST and Binoche. I actually think Binoche was lead and KST was supporting. But regardless of the placement, Binoche deserved her win. KST and Fiennes were great as well.

    it’s certainly a good film and one of the better winners, but secrets & lies should’ve easily won best picture & director

    Love it! The directing, cinematography, the score, and most certainly the acting are all epic. Ralph Fiennes, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Juliette Binoche are all award-worthy. The adaptation was also worthy of recognition because that complex novel was a beast to translate to film. So many of the layers were revealed with remarkable tact and developed throughout the film. The English Patient most certainly possesses the sweep of a David Lean film and harkens to an era of visual epics.

    I remember the film fondly, being a freshman in high school, and I recall I was glad it swept the 69th Academy Awards. I liked many films that year; however, I fully support most of their victories because of the scope and overall impact. Fargo, Secrets & Lies, and The People vs. Larry Flynt are among my favorites from that year.

    Love it, but wasn’t the best picture of that year.
