Oh my gosh, I keep forgetting to do this. Tsotsi, as everyone reading this probably already knows, won the Oscar for best foreign language film. Which it deserved (say I, having not seen any of the contenders. Go me and my opinions!) The lead, Presley Chweneyagae, was just brilliant, and I found myself thinking what a different (and -awful-) movie it would have been if an American studio had taken the same basic premise. This one, however, was complex and moving. Thumbs up.
