One More Big Thing For 2010 - Sad Brad Smith

So I've now watched and inspected pretty much all the movies that are 'rumoured' to be in line for Oscar noms come February, such is my excitement for the damn thing. And I've gotta say, only Jason Reitman's 'Up in the Air' really dazzled me. 'Precious', 'The Lovely Bones', 'Nine'? Don't swallow the hype. But more on all that in a later post...

This entry marks the charming wonderment of Sad Brad Smith, whose 'Help Yourself' almost stole the thunder of George Clooney's showing in 'Air'. A Chicagoan singer songwriter with an ear for drop-dead chord progressions and lonesome musings, the hearsay has it that Reitman actually discovered SBS himself. What a story. And no doubt, what a beginning.
