"Killers of the Flower Moon" Named to TIME's 10 Best Movies of 2023 List

TIME Maagazine named Killers of the Flower Moon to its 10 Best Movies of 2023 list.

The movie unveils the story of the Osage, who, because of oil on their allotted lands in Oklahoma, became some of the world's wealthiest people on a per capita basis. During the 1920s, dozens of Osage died under mysterious circumstances. In many cases, those circumstances turned out to be murder. The film concentrates on the family of Mollie Burkhart, played by 37-year-old Lily Gladstone (Blackfeet and Nimíipuu), who had several members of her family murdered, including two sisters.

In naming Killers of the Flower Moon to its list, TIME Magazine said the following about the movie:

To watch Lily Gladstone (above) in Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon is to recapture a thread of history that has, until recently, eluded most of us. Scorsese has made a somber, poetic adaptation of David Grann's account of how a group of greedy white men systematically murdered members of the Osage Nation in early 1920s Oklahoma. As Mollie Burkhart, a rich Osage woman whose family was gradually killed off around her, Gladstone gives face to a million stories that have been conveniently forgotten in modern America. Scorsese's mournful epic also features bigger movie stars, like Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. But Gladstone's Mollie is the soul of his film, and he knows it.
