BOYHOOD (2014)

(Post 50 of 50)

Some quick takes on the most relatively recent listings from the
1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list

A film that took a dozen years or so to make and dramatizes the growing pains of a boy and his family during the course of that time. Unique in approach and may be dismissed by some as gimmicky, Boyhood works for me and the unusual nature of seeing the boy in the title (and his sister, mother and father) grow over the course of the time supplements the narrative instead of overpowers it.  I liked this one enough that it would have been my choice for Best Picture for 2014-not that the Academy asked me.
