In light of Gone Girl keeping the top spot at the box office, it struck me that it's an authentic voice and story. The ensemble comedy, This is Where I Leave You, is out of the top ten after two weeks. The Judge, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, with anything starring the former oozes integrity and the latter is one of the few bankable stars, debuted at fifth. It didn't strike me as an authentic work; more as a John Grisham-esque courtroom thriller, and though we haven't seen one in a while, we have seen them before. Watch for original works such as Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and Nightcrawler to triumph in the weeks ahead. Reading The New York Times interview with Michael Keaton, Birdman appears a frontrunner for this year's Oscar race, and is a completely original work, deriving and arising from the director's experiences. It's also eight years after The New Yorker declared "something was afoot in Mexican filmmaking." Remember 2006, when Inarritu's Babel, Del Torro's Pan's Labyrinth, and Alfonso Cuaron's Children of Men all came out? Recall last year, when Curaon's Gravity won seven Oscars. The three are still on a roll, and taking their time, which proves to produce original work.
