Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
I recently saw Spike in Los Angeles and thought that it was an absolutely beautiful film. Robert Beaucage creates an entire world that both the audience and the characters can get lost in. I think it was an inspired love story that showed both the best and worst of its characters.
I particularly enjoyed Ed Gusts performance as the title character. I think that he showed real sensitivity and heart ache through out the movie.
The best part comes at the end. I won't completely give it away, but it was a tender moment that would move the hardest of hearts. Because it does have touching moments and is essentially a love story, the film is far more complex than a typical horror. It has blood, certainly, but it also has heart.
