  1. Excellent film, really fine performances! My only criticism is that it felt entirely too much like watching a filmed play. I am guessing that the dialogue was faithfully followed because it gave me the strong sense that it might have been more effective on stage. Nevertheless, Denzel Washington has never been better and, in spite of the strong competition in the Actor category, his performance stands out to me as the best of the bunch, by far…small wonder he got SAG’s recognition.

    • Yes, I imagine it was very hard to distinguish this version from a play when making Fences. The more I think about Denzel’s performance the more I think he’ll win best actor, though I think there is some strong competition.
