I wouldn’t say he was out-played. They fed off of each other, it was brilliant cinema. They were completely different characters, kinda ironic really. Don’t get me wrong, Affleck was amazing and totally deserved his Oscar nomination, but Pitt had something intense about him.
I agree, but it takes a lot to get a nomination, as we’re talking about the 5 best nominees from an entire year. Now I haven’t watched all the films of 2007, hell, I haven’t watched all of the films where the actors in the category was nominated, so I guess I can’t say anything.
