Everything was top quality. The writing, the directing, the acting, the make-up was all top quality. This was definitely Leo's best role to date and so far he looks like the favorite to win Best Actor at this time. Naomi Watts, Judi Dench, and Arnie Hammer were all incredible in their supporting role. I could sense that every actor and actress in the film responded well to Clint Eastwood's direction and flourished with a screenplay provided by Dustin Lance Black. Completely Oscar worthy.
