this is tough! might need to revisit Two Lovers before I vote but I'm leaning Z

I really noticed him after We Own the Night, which looked like another genre piece but given new life thanks to editing and framing choices.

I thought Ad Astra was a backwards step and quite bang average and forgettable nonsense after the previous two being so excellent. Did Brad Pitt take over the show or something?

well, Disney did re-edit it.

don't worry, I'm sure they'll capitalize and sell us a Director's Cut at some point

I strongly doubt that.

Not just re-edited, did reshoots without him.

I didn't know that. Still liked it.

For me it's definitely Z, but I like all of these quite a bit.

little odessa, of the ones I've seen (which is just that, we own the night, and ad astra)

i finally saw Little Odessa a week ago and found it fairly rough going; thought Maximilian Schell gave the best performance, with Tim Roth doing his third-rate Brando/de Niro thing.
