Oscar Season Begins

I caught an early screening of All the King's Men last night. The highlight of the film, by far, was Sean Penn's performance. As the fictional Louisiana Governor Wille Stark, Madonna's ex-husband was absolutely convincing. Hmmmm, Sean Penn, believable as a populist demagogue? Who saw that one coming? Sarandon and Clooney must be proud.

Smart-ass Hollywood jabs aside, Penn carried this movie. I would contend that he, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Bill Murray are the best actors of the 21st Century.
