Oscar Reviews

Over the last two years America's expanded Books & Culture section has reviewed many of the season's critically lauded films, including several of the nominees for Best Picture. Here we provide links to these reviews by our team of critics.  See what our reviewers thought of this year's nominees here.  And in a few weeks we'll do our annual Oscar podcast.
