The Aviator

Wosog and I went to see The Aviator yesterday. What a great film with superb performances from several actors, particularly Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes. I didn't realise it was such a long movie (170 minutes), but it didn't seem over long because the performances and the story were so engaging.

This was definitely a film best seen in the cinema because the flying sequences were absolutely amazing on the big screen. The scene where Hughes has his second plane crash, and almost dies, is incredible.

Martin Scorsese is one of my favourite directors, and I hope The Aviator wins the Oscar for Best Film this year.
