He's the best! I'm SOOOOO happy that he won! I was yelling at the TV - "Oh my god! He won! He won!" *laughs*
And what a terrific, emotional acceptance speech - I got all choked up.
I've been raving about this guy to everyone I know for YEARS. Ever since I saw him in "Summer of Sam," I was blown away and I've made sure I've seen everything of his that I could get my hands on.
Other films of his that are definitely worth seeing are "Liberty Heights" and "Bread and Roses."
