Okay so the time for Babylon came and went, the movie released and it went overlooked and underappreciated and then the Oscar’s came and it went overlooked and underappreciated again. But I think there are very specific reasons for both. And both the reason society overlooked the film and the reason the academy overlooked it are the reasons why Babylon is brilliant and should be treated as such. Basically this is an article about why I wish the academy would stop overlooking perfection.
The movie is truly a work of art, it’s brilliant and for it to be overlooked because the industry professionals voting didn’t like what it said about them is a little funny just because it proves the point of the film. So it’s ironic but still upsetting.
