In the continuing saga of trying to watch the best movies of last year, I watched three top-notch movies in the last week or so:
Muscle Shoals (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was music documentary #1 on my flight to Vegas. Awesome doc about this unlikely epicentre of soul music in Alabama.
Sound City (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was Dave Grohl’s love letter to the crap studio where many great rock albums — including Nevermind — were recorded.
Gravity (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was all it was hyped up to be: incredibly tense, and a technical marvel. It’s no wonder it won seven Oscars (including best director and best cinematography) Sunday night.
