Inarittu wins DGA

History was made last night when Inarittu won the Director's Guild of America award. Well merited? somewhat. This was still Lubezki's movie, he owned every frame. Inarittu was just complimenting the ownage. I'd have preferred George Miller, but, hell, why not Inarittu. Sure beats presumed favorite Adam McKay who basically shot The Big Short in the flashiest, most unexciting of ways. Plus, would you really want McKay winning the Best Director Oscar? The guy is know for Will Ferrell movies and came out of nowhere to become an Awards contender. All props to him for that, but watching The Big Short I never felt like I was being guided by a natural artist, many of the shots are pure plastic, plasticized plastic.
