I'm a little late to the punch on this one, but A couple days ago I saw small film called Short Term 12.
Destin Cretton has only a few short films to his credit, but he hit one out of the park in his first feature attempt. There are two key moments that I remember most strongly and they will likely affect the way I view writing for the next few of months leading up to the Oscars.
One excellent rap sequence.
It's not that this is a most difficult feat, or that we never see this happen in movies... rather I think it is the way Destin maturely managed the timing, purpose, and executions of both of these scenes to make the audience genuinely come together and sort of just understand exactly what at heart this movie was about. I suppose I'm just glad I went out of my way to see Short Term 12.
