Oscar Vault Monday – The Crying Game, 1992 (dir. Neil Jordan)


Neil Jordan is one of my favorite directors. I have so much love for Interview With A Vampire and Breakfast On Pluto. I finally got around to watching this film, Jordan’s only film to be nominated for Best Picture, a few years back and I so fell in love with it. I think I watched it twice before I sent it back to Netflix and then got it for Christmas a few months later. It is just such a beautiful film. On the outside it’s a film about the IRA, but really it’s a film about love and how it can arise so unexpectedly. The Crying Game was nominated for six Academy Awards, winning one: Best Film Editing, Best Original Screenplay (won), Best Supporting Actor Jaye Davidson, Best Actor Stephen Rea, Best Director and Best Picture. It was up against A Few Good Men, Howards End, Scent of A Woman and winner Unforgiven.
