Alien wrote:First, there's no movie that can compare to the brilliance of Silence of the Lambs except for Fargo. Second, this film was nominated at last year's Oscars and lost out to Chicago.
And Daniel Day Lewis lost to Adrien Brody.
Toe Save wrote:Then I had a big problem with the length of the movie....it was one scene too short....I totally got the allegory that the times had changed and what mattered before did not seem half as important as the new world order. I saw this as the two rivals lay battered by the militaristic onslaught barely able to believe what had happened. But Coppola goes on to make sure that we all get it by montaging the changing NYC skyline ending up with a shot of the twin towers. My question is this....if he is going to make this statement, why didn't he go all the way and continue the montage to show the skyline as it is today?
