What a brilliant piece of art that brings the audience in to all aspects of war and the effects it has on family and friends. Most importantly it truly show cases the true heroes that are willing to sacrifice it all to give us the freedom to write pieces like this.
Interesting way to film a movie but still boring. This is why none of our normal life's are filmed over 12 years. I'm curious if the liberal bias helped it get it's nomination. Boyhood makes the top ten boring movies of the year.
A story that had it all but was truly to deep for this version big screen. Here was a film that touched on your heart strings but didn't know how to pull them enough to let your emotions fully come out. The biggest flaw was they way that it ended compared to the version held by the book. Add a 1/2 star if you haven't read the book.
It is wonderful when a movie truly opens you to a whole new world not only through your eyes but your heart and even your soul as "The Chosen" has done. The script and acting are first class with an ending that allows for more thought provoking discussions. The only negative aspect I perceived is that I believe some scenes could have been drawn out a bit longer so that their emotional impact could be fully felt by the audience. Yet still a brilliant movie even in today's times.
