Whatever your assessment of the Academy Awards, on the off chance that you care about film, you can’t simply expel them. The Academy’s champs serve as a past filled with film. Going through the rundown of Best Picture victors, you’ll see patterns come and go and in any event, get a harsh feeling of what was esteemed in films for every year and the movement of patterns.
Here are 7 movies that lost the Oscars, but definitely deserve your time.
- First Reformed
Ethan Hawke was generally great and profoundly astute in his presentation in this film. First Reformed is an extremely unusual flick. Hawke plays a military cleric turned minister of a noteworthy church. A young mother (Amanda Seyfried) requests that he counsel her husband, whose agnostic perspectives strike as a crisis of faith to the pastor. The film in all its capacity zeroes in on the fate of the world and probably this is the reason it was in the running for Best original screenplay. You can stream it on Vudu, Amazon Prime Video, Youtube and Google Play.
- Black Panther
A Marvel movie! Yes! But it lost. And if you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a favor and please go watch it. You are missing a cinematic and superhero masterpiece. It is now streaming on Netflix.
- A Quiet Place
The Quiet Place crawls with Beasts who are blind and sensitive only to sound. The only defense against these monsters is to keeping pin drop silent in their presence. The film won a nomination for the best sound editing. The film is streaming on Vudu, Google Play, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube.
Shoplifters already had a taste of a win at the Cannes Film Festival. The film set in Tokyo showcases aims to bring out the rare side of family integrity topped by an incredible performance by Sakura Andô. The film is streaming on Vudu and YouTube.
- Cold War
Set in the backdrop of the Iron curtain, the film takes us through the love story of a couple spanning over 15 turbulent years. The black and white format adds to the sanctity of the story that is much inspired by director Pawlikowski’s parents. An otherwise exhausted and dramatic tale of passionate love is wonderfully narrated and the cinematography simply adds to the feel. The film is streaming on Amazon video.
- Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant is awfully underrated in this stunning film based on queer characters. The film was nominated for the best picture. It is available on Amazon Video, iTunes, Google Play, or Vudu.
A riveting documentary about a woman with exceptional mental power was surprisingly left out of the contention of awards. “I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks.” The line sends chills down the spine and so does the story. The film is streaming on Hulu, YouTube, Vudu or Google Play.
