Anyone who goes into a historical drama etc thinking that they're watching a documentary deserves to be told that it was in fact time travelling aliens that killed Hitler.
Despite being entirely fictional Purple Rain will still capture the essence of Prince better than any future biopic will.


Did anyone see the James Brown biopic a few years back? Great performance, shockingly bad film.

Oh absolutely. But I thought the article was interesting, going through them and outlining how much they deviate from the truth and whether or not it matters. Usually the conclusion is that it doesn't.

I think the oscars are at the wagon circling stage of existence.

That queen thing was effectively being awarded for turning a british rock band into a hollywood franchise. the 'best foreign' language film is usually the best thing and the existence of that award assumes english mericuh as everyones first language, and is a handy way to prevent global cinema being consistently better than hollywood, or even having to compete with it.
