MOVIE OF THE WEEK: Animal Kingdom

"Animal Kingdom" is a must-see, it is completely engaging from start to finish. From the first scene I knew this was going to be a good movie. Jacki Weaver deserves all the Oscar buzz for her portrayal as the matriarch of this Australian criminal family. She had such a scary calmness in the role, it was quite discomforting. I also thought Ben Mendelsohn was superb in his role. I actually thought the film was too short, in particular there was an important development in the end that I felt should have been shown. But I guess "more is less". At the end I was begging for more, I highly recommend this film.
