I love a good ensemble piece. I love it because it gives more focus on the collective and less on a select few star names. a good ensemble piece is not that straightforward, so when it’s done well, I’m a big fan.
Has this list got it right? Well the top five – Birdcage? Dunno. Ain’t seen Inglorious either. Definitely agree with place of American Beauty, but where on earth was L.A. Confidential? Or how about that epic ensemble piece Glengarry Glen Ross? Big misses in the list, and Apollo 13 being better that those? I’m not sold.
Still, that’s the beauty of these lists, always giving you something to talk about. Enjoy.
