Trailer Watch: Fish Tank
The word on Fish Tank is that it is already the best film of 2010 (not that there's been much competition). It won a Special Jury Prize at Cannes, and director Andrea Arnold has already won an Academy Award for her short film Wasp. First-time actress Katie Jarvis is getting beyond fabulous notes for her performance as an angsty teen. Also, the cast has Michael Fassbender (who is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors after his recent performances in Hunger and Inglourious Basterds). Yeah, there seems to be a lot to get excited about. With the monotony of the recent Oscar nominations (more on that later), I'm already looking forward to the great films of 2010. Fish Tank seems like it may deliver.
