Rabbit Hole suggests the kind of intractable reality that the year's movies hint at and then avoid. But no film confronts that reality with the bluntness of 127 HOURS, Danny Boyle's true story of a guy pinned down by a rock. You might try wishing it away, or slipping into a reverie about a sofa, but when you wake up, the rock is still there. Time to make some tough choices. For the Academy, the choice will be a Best Picture nomination for the film and Best Actor for the disarming star of the movie and host of the ceremony, JAMES FRANCO.
