Metro Gets Our Early Oscar Nod

Our early Oscar nod for best supporting actor goes to Metro for its small, but key role in State of Play, a Russell Crowe movie about a reporter uncovering corruption in government.

The aging, dare we say over the hill, Metro does a magnificent job of channeling the character of a younger, hardworking transit system, appearing state-of-the-art, efficient and sleek as it whisks passengers off to their destinations. We don't want to give too much away, but this bravura performance is a massive departure from Metro's more familiar role as a wheezing, underfunded and overtaxed subway on its last wheel. The transformation is simply magical and a delight for fans of the cinema. It kills.

Bravo, Metro. Bravo.

I thought the performance was more ephemeral. Glowing, no doubt.
