Beasts of No Nation

Is perhaps not as great or as important as it might think it is, while at the same time still being very worthwhile.  And, though this was no Jane Eyre, I am still a big champion of Cary Fukunaga, and will always look forward to his future projects.  Fukunaga is kind of a one man band prodigy type.  He writes, directs, and shoots his pictures.  Insane.

Can we just acknowledge that Idris Elba is one of the finest actors on the planet?  You can see and feel the motivation for each one of his acting choices.  Even the slightly off pitch ones translate in an odd and satisfying way.  And, he really did get screwed by the Academy this time around, but that's just par for the course for that organization.
