Catch Me If You Can
I suppose I had a premonition that Michigan was going to loose in the first round of Big Ten Basketball Tournament, so I didn’t even go to Duffy’s to watch the game. Instead I went to movies to see: Catch Me If You Can. The film “tells the true story of Frank Abagnale, the youngest man to make the FBI’s most-wanted list for forgery.” Leonardo DiCaprio turns in a good performance playing the Frank character. Also, Tom Hank convincingly portrays the role of FBI agent chasing Frank. But I’m trying to figure out why Christopher Walken got a Best Supporting Actor nomination for playing Frank’s father. Don’t get me wrong, he did a fine job. But in a year with such great films and outstanding performances, hard to believe that there was not someone more deserving of that nomination. Walken’s role/performance was simply not Oscar worthy.
