Best Pictures From the Outside In

Have you seen all of the Best Picture winners over the years? I'm nearing my personal finish line. (Mea culpa. 5 remain unseen: Gentlemen's Agreement, Hamlet, A Man For All Seasons, The French Connection and *gulp* The Godfather Part II. I am deeply ashamed) If you're semi-new to The Film Experience, check out this tri-blog series wherein Nick, Mike and Nathaniel (c'est moi), rescreen the winners starting from both ends of Oscar's chronologally. (We began in 2008 which is why Slumdog Millionaire and The Hurt Locker do not kick the festivities off)
