Film Award 2012: The Diving into Sheol Award
Hours upon hours of reflection. A mildly heated debate with a friend over the topic of free will. A nightmare. An agreeable consensus that it bucked some trends. A film that had both an atheist friend and myself in complete agreement on the film's lasting emotional power.
In conjunction with the first point, it resulted in a change in heart on certain issues, resulting in a bit of a paradigm shift.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am referring to none other than the film below.
Kids, I give the "Diving into Sheol" award to:
Easily the most emotionally staggering and intense film of the year. The performances and personifications are stellar, especially if one can see elements of themselves in each rugged individual.
A haunting, stripped down epic about survival, free will and the instinct of transcendence.
