Malkovich most definitley, it was really his movie. He really sold it as a man that was totaly fed up. One of his best performances. Pitt and McDormand were very good too, who may also get nominations. I really enjoyed the movie and would have no problem seeing it again.

I agree about his portrayal of Ozzy Cox, as was the best character in the movie and I think his name should be in the running for Best Supporting Actor.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
