The film of this generation. The Citizen Kane of the 21st century. One of the best of the decade. Best film of the year. A lot of hype has been built around this film and it’s one of the more ridiculous instances of it. It’s not because it’s a bad film, or that it doesn’t warrant praise, it’s just that most of the praise given is a bit on the ludicrous side. The film of this generation? Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. The Citizen Kane of the 21st century? There Will be Blood. One of the best of the decade? Ask me again in 9 years and 3 months. Best film of the year? Winter’s Bone.
